Bittercress: Sidewalk Snapshot

If you’re interested in identifying this wild mustard, note the distinctive basal leaves — in other words, that the leaves grow out of the base of the plant rather than from a tall vertical stem — and the little pairs of opposite leaflets on each one. Bittercress is a tasty wild mustard that you can eat all parts of!

  1. I tasted Bittercress for the first time today while trying to identify local weeds for my shop and future use. Mild spice and strongly bitter aftertaste. Any suggestions for how to use it medicinally.
