Upland cress is a cool-season annual that is easy to grow and produces a quick harvest. It is a member of the mustard family and has a slightly peppery flavor. Upland cress can be eaten raw, cooked, or pickled.

Here are some tips for growing upland cress:

  • Plant upland cress in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Upland cress prefers cool weather, so plant it in the spring or fall.
  • Sow the seeds directly in the ground. Space the seeds about 1/4 inch deep and 2-3 inches apart.
  • Water the seeds regularly and keep the soil moist. Upland cress germinates in about 7-10 days.
  • Once the seedlings emerge, thin them to 6 inches apart.
  • Fertilize the plants every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Water the plants regularly, especially during hot weather.
  • Harvest the leaves when they are 2-3 inches tall. You can harvest the entire plant at once, or you can harvest individual leaves as needed.

Here are some tricks for growing upland cress:

  • To extend the harvest season, plant upland cress in succession. Sow a new batch of seeds every 2-3 weeks.
  • To protect upland cress from bolting (going to seed prematurely), plant it in a cool spot and water it regularly.
  • To keep the leaves tender, harvest them often.
  • Upland cress is a good companion plant for tomatoes, cucumbers, and other vegetables. It helps to repel pests and attract beneficial insects.

Upland cress is a versatile and delicious crop that is easy to grow.
