What makes Cress such a popular and sought-after variety in the world of sprouts and microgreens is certainly the speed and ease with it can be cultivated. And, although it does not require much effort to grow to its full potential, the result won’t disappoint at all: thanks to its strong, spicy flavour, only a little is needed to enrich any of your recipes.


Organic Cress

The organic seeds of Cress, botanical name Lepidium sativum, grow fast and require no special attention. Thus, in just a few days, they will give birth to sprouts that are as small as they are tasty, thanks to their fresh and pleasantly pungent flavour.


How can I grow it?

Producing organic Cress sprouts is quick and easy, even at home.
This variety has a mucilaginous seed: this means that, when it comes into contact with water, it develops a mucous membrane around it to ensure proper and constant moisture throughout germination. Therefore, we advise you to avoid soaking and start directly with a not-too-long rinse. By storing the seeds in the dark and continuing to spray them regularly, you can consume your organic Cress sprouts in less than a week.

How can I eat it?

Tender and thin, organic cress sprouts are a perfect addition to add colour and flavour to your dishes. Try them in classic salads, or experiment by adding them as a garnish to bruschetta, carpaccio or soups.

Organic Cress seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten and grasses.

Store seeds in a cool and ventilated place, with temperature between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, humidity changes and sunlight.
