Watercress is a hardy perennial in the mustard family that is native to Asia, Europe and naturalized in North America. As its name suggests, the plant is semi-aquatic and typically found near marshes and other wetlands.

While it is sometimes considered an invasive weed, watercress is cultivated as a vegetable and herb. As an herb, dried watercress lends a peppery flavor to soups, stews, eggs, potatoes and rice.

watercress herb

Watercress is a perennial, semi-aquatic plant native to Europe and Asia. As a member of the mustard family, the herb protects itself from predators with the defense chemicals glucosinolate and myrosinase. These substances also lend watercress the spicy, pungent flavor that is characteristic of cruciferous vegetables and salad greens.

While the fresh leaves of watercress are used in salads and sandwiches, the dried herb is prepared as tea and used to add peppery flavor to soups, stews, braised meats and other foods.
