Upland Cress

Upland Cress greens have rosettes of dark green, round leaves with a peppery taste. Upland Cress is also commonly known as “winter cress” or “creasy greens” in the southern United States. Unlike watercress, which is a seasonal crop, Upland Cress is available year-round. Like other dark leafy greens, Upland Cress is packed with nutrients like vitamins A and C. The tangy flavor of Upland Cress adds a nice touch to salads and sandwiches, and can also work as a garnish.
