When to Plant:

  • Plant seeds in early spring before the last frost.
  • Cress grows quickly, and can be harvested in 15-20 days. Therefore, you can continue to sow Cress up until temperatures exceed 75 degrees F during the day, and then again in the late summer early fall when temperatures drop again.

How to Grow:

  • Sow seeds ¼ inch deep, thickly in wide rows.
  • Each row should be spaced approximately 18-24 inches apart.
  • Make sure to choose a cooler, shady area. Cress becomes very bitter in hot weather.
  • Water generously, make sure roots do not dry out. You can spray seedlings daily to keep moist.
  • Thin the cress once seedlings are an inch or two tall so that they are six inches apart from each other.

When to Harvest:

  • Cress tastes best during its early seed/leaf stage, so cut or pinch tips of cress once it grows to about 3-4 inches tall.
  • If you cut the plant back to ¼ inch, it will quickly regrow.
  • Snip the stalks off at the base, and store in your refrigerator. Generally, it will last up to one week.
