Extra Curled Pepper Grass Seeds (Mustard Group) 1500 Heirloom Vegetable. Seed is quick to sprout, soon forming small stems of lacy deep green leaves that make a delicious addition to salads, sandwiches, omelettes and mixed vegetable dishes. Sow seed every 2 weeks right through the season for a continuous supply of this little beauty. Best harvested when young for top flavour and tenderness. During winter, this variety can be easily grown in containers set in a bright window.

How to Grow
600 seed/gram. Cress grows best in cooler weather and flourishes in a moist soil that is fertile and highly organic. Select a site that is bright, but has some shelter from the hot, direct afternoon sun. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep. Keep cress well watered and the soil moist. Never let it dry out. One packet sows approximately 10 m (33’) of row.
