Salad green that will impress. Mix some lettuce, add some dress. Stir it up, sit down and fress. Banish cares and summer stress.
With a designer’s eye, a discerning palate, and a breeder’s deft touch, Frank Morton crossed Persian and curled cresses to create a gene pool, from which he selected Wrinkled Crinkled. Broad leaves are extremely ruffled and wrinkled along the margins and savoyed in the middle. A fluffy spicy addition to your salad mix, imparting a tang, plus an irresistible sweetness. Can be bunched for market. OSSI. Independent Breeder. ①
