No soak needed for this peppery sprout!
Current lot is a different variety than the previous lot which just means the leaves are slightly different and not as curly. Rest assured, it's still that great peppery Cress flavor!
- Days to Sprout: Sprout- 4-5 days. Microgreen- 8-12 days
- Soak Time : NO SOAK
- Yield: Sprouts- 1 tbsp dry seed yields approx. 2-3 cups sprouts. Microgreens- 1 tbsp dry seed yields approx. 8-12 cups microgreens.

Curly cress, or garden cress is a fast-growing, edible herb that is botanically related to watercress and mustard, sharing their peppery, tangy flavor and aroma. In some regions, curly cress is known as garden pepper cress, pepper grass, pepperwort or poor man's pepper.
Do Not Soak Seed
Dampen an unglazed clay pot bottom or tray lined with Baby Blanket, unbleached paper towel or coffee filter, or soil. Sprinkle lightly with dry seeds, leaving space between the seeds. Spray lightly with water until damp but not too wet. Preserve moisture by loosely covering seeds with clear plastic.
Spray lightly with water twice a day. Keep damp, but not too wet. When established, sprouts can be rinsed under a slow flowing tap.
Enjoy! Ready in 4-8 days.
Sprouts store best when fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.
Info: Sprouted seeds have between 4 to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts. (1)
