Hi,
My Tortoise LOVES her watercress, but is it ok for her to have the strong and peppery version? I cant find her regular one at the market I go to at the moment

I bought that on accident, and my tortoise didn't eat it.

Watercress is supposed to be peppery! Where have you found a non-peppery version lol!?

It's completely fine to feed.

You mean they sold you Genetically Modified goods???
Tammy I'm lost??? I've planted watercress seeds in the viv using the coco coir substrate. Do you think you can't get watercress that's not peppery, your sending my head spinning! 😜 You have to explain now. I'm not that screwed on...😉

Penny has dropped. All watercress has a peppery taste, but I'm gonna grow my own genetically modified version. I will remove the peppery DNA from the plants structure, through the growing stage and then I'm sending you a sample to show you how amazing I am at science!
I honestly didn't know all watercress is peppery. It's just says strong and peppery watercress on the bag.

Seriously, as far as I know, all watercress is great food for tortoises and turtles!
