Large leaved garden cress grows a bit slower than the common garden cress and is has a spicier taste. The young leaves of the cress can be harvested as sprouts. If you let the leaves grow it is possible to eat the leaves as crudités.

The best way to grow these sprouts is to use a glass bowl (see here on our Dutch website). The seeds should be spread in a thin layer over the grid. Then you can fill the bowl with water until the water touches the grid. If needed, refill the bowl with water daily. The seeds should be placed on a light place at room temperature. The sprouts will be ready to consume after one week.
