This cress is very spicy. Use as a garnish or add to salad and other dishes. Leaves oblong and smooth along margins. Cool weather green.

Notes from a customer about how she uses this variety, "I think of Persian cress as a green. I am Iranian myself and the way Iranians serve the cress is, in a plate of greens (which are considered herbs here ), with mint, basil, chives, cilantro, tarragon, radish and spring onion, or even by itself. A salad of raw greens/herbs as a side to every meal. Try it! It is amazing! You can even add nuts and feta cheese to the plate!"
