Tahoon Cress is harvested on the north side of the Himalayas. In early spring, women collect the freshly germinating seedlings from under the trees. The young sprouts are then used in dishes. In local folklore it is described as a stimulant for the stomach. Its taste is really surprising and attractive. The seeds themselves have a very strong beechnut flavor. This taste comes back in the young plants of Tahoon Cress and sticks on your tongue for a long time. We cultivate the product a bit longer as is done in nature, because we believe that the secondary leaves make the product more attractive, giving it a higher decorative value.
