Cress: Upland
Barbarea verna
Completely different creature than Garden Cress. Also called “creasy greens” back in my Appalachian hills. The most cold hardy winter salad green we know, and a welcome tonic in combination with escarole, chervil, chickweed, and chicory. Transplant or direct sow anytime, but flavor is best in cold weather. We prefer August sowings for picking autumn thru March. Spacing at 6” provides the best quality leaves. Yellow blossoms attract and feed syrphids, lady beetles, wasps and other aphid eaters.
