    1. Didnโ€™t realize they were edible. Googled them after reading your comment and they sound so tasty as well as pretty. Always appreciate a bit of learning. Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. You’ll see them occasionally in restaurant salads here and also in variety lettuce packs. They have quite a peppery taste and I just learned (dito about the learning) that their name in German (Kresse) comes from an old Germanic word (cresso) which meant “hot” (as in pungent).
