Watercress is an emergent perennial aquatic herb. Older leaves are compound with many wavy-edged, oval or lance-shaped leaflets growing from a central stalk. It has thin and fibrous roots at the bottom. The leaves taste very close to pepper. The plant blooms between March and October. The fruits are thin, slightly curved cylinders and contain four rows of small, round seeds. Watercress is commonly used as a salad green. It is also used as a garnish for meats and other dishes where a peppery or pungent flavour is desired.
