50-55 days. Once upon a time, a Puritan cook noticed Watercress growing happily in deep shade and naturally concluded it was an herb of the Devil. Accordingly, it had to be eaten with leaves which had been raised in bright sunlight, like Lettuce. Our authentic Watercress variety is tangy, pungent and prefers to grow beside (or in) moving water. It grows best in cool temperatures and can only tolerate partial shade or dappled sunlight. Grow it in damp places in your garden or in a pot with a deep saucer constantly filled with water. (OP.)
