Watercress

Watercress is one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables in the world. It’s a globally known green, famous for its flavor and delicate crunch. With more than 28 essential vitamins, minerals and compounds, watercress is a superfood offering a distinctive taste that stands out from many of the muted flavors other salad greens provide. For over 150 years, b&w has specialized in baby leaves, with a singular focus on quality. Since 1870, our varieties have been selected for superior flavor and consistent appearance.
