This hardy lettuce can be harvested even in winter (the plant remains green until December 4). Harvest the young bittercress leaves as early as the beginning of spring.
It is easy to cultivate, prefers sun or partial shade and regular water. The drier the location the sharper its taste. Harvest before the first bloom; only then do the leaves have a pleasant spicy, watercress-like taste. May be used in the same manner as raw cress.
Herb barbara can be cultivated in small pots or balcony trays.
