From Wild Garden Seed's Frank Morton, who says this about it: "Our most popular original variety ever, currently sold by all of our commercial catalog accounts, and the subject of many personal heartfelt raves. From a cross between ‘Persian’ and ‘Curly’ cress, the leaves of this unique type are held erect for easy cutting and cleaner product. The twisted, crisped, and savoyed texture give these leaves unexpected heft and toothsomeness for a little garden cress. Widely reported to be the last variety to bolt in comparative trials, meaning more cuts per sowing. And a good name. OSSI-pledged variety."
