SEED FOR CRESS
Our varieties are well adapted to production of salad cress. Colza-cress is an appealing product with a mild taste. Children like it!
The cultivation technique for colza-cress is similar to other species having round seeds. Growth is a little slower than Lepidium sativum (= normal cress).
In a test with WITT cress, 28 out of 30 children liked the product. According to the children the WITT cress tasted like very mild radish. Some of the small children asked for more! In contrast most children do not like the Lepidium sativum “cress” because of its strong taste.
Colza-cress is a very pedagogical way to teach children how to enjoy healthy green vegetables.
