Watercress, native to Europe and central Asia, is used as salad greens by the Japanese and others throughout the continent. Grown in water, it is usually cultivated in chalk streams that have a somewhat constant temperature and flow. There is often more demand than supply at local markets, since watercress is considered highly nutritious and a staple green.
