An annual herbaceous plant of the cabbage family 10-30 cm high. This is the most early-ripening leafy vegetable crop. Ready for use 12-20 days after sowing. The plant is cold-resistant, shade-tolerant, moisture-loving. In hot weather, the leaves coarsen, and the plant shoots. Under it, wet semi-shaded areas should be taken away. Prefers fertile soils. Watercress is sown in early spring to a depth of 0.5-1 cm, the seeding rate is 0.8-1.2 g/m2. Row spacing is 10-15 cm. After germination (2-3 days), they are thinned out at a distance of 5-7 cm. Sowings are repeated 10-15 days before the onset of dry weather and resumed at the end of summer.

Helpful Hint: watercress should be consumed fresh, as its aroma disappears when cooked or dried.
You can put a bunch of these greens when canning vegetables, which will give them a sharpness and original taste.
