Cultivar Notes - 'Watercress'
Watercress enhances nutrition in recipes while adding a unique, peppery flavor to foods. You will find that watercress (Nasturtium officinale) and garden cress (Lepidium sativum) may be referred to interchangeably as the same herb. Sometimes watercress in grocery stores may actually be garden cress. Does it matter? Not really. Gardeners, chefs and home cooks enjoy growing and cooking with them both. The familiar exhortation, "Eat your vegetables" is said for good reasons, mainly for a healthier body. Add watercress to your veggie list! Nasturtium officinale is among the list of cancer fighting cruciferous vegetables. Watercress contains beneficial phytonutrients, and according to the USDA just 10 sprigs of watercress (25g) will provide an excellent source of Vitamin K* - 63mcg (78% DV); a good source of Vitamin A - 798IU (16%DV); and Vitamin C -11mg (18% DV). Watercress also contains many other nutrients including Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate and trace amounts of 18 beneficial Amino acids.
