can you freeze watercress?

It will take you 24 hours to find out. Then you could report back here with your findings. I would think there are a few people who would like to know.

No. . It doesn't freeze well.

Do you know how lng it lasts in the fridge?

If you can freeze spinach, why can't you freeze watercress? ? ?

Put in a bucket of water and change the water every day.
A few people started a little home business growing it hydroponically. A tiny fish bowl pump, nutrients, and you are on your way.

Well, we've frozen it successfully - but only for a month. Nothing worse than a lovely lot of pork bones and no water cress! ! Sure, it is not nearly as good as fresh, but desperation calls for all measures!

Yep... . can freeze spinach and silverbeet too.

I always freeze watercress... everytime we come home from Hokitika I bring home frozen watercress that I blanch for a couple of minutes in boiling water and it is just perfect. I do that every time now so go for it
