Tropaeolum


Tropaeolum is commonly known as nasturtium (literally "nose-twister" or "nose-tweaker")

Nasturtiums have been used in herbal medicine for their antiseptic and expectorant qualities. They are said to be good for chest colds and to promote the formation of new blood cells.

The flower has most often been consumed, making for an especially ornamental salad ingredient; it has a slightly peppery taste reminiscent of watercress, and is also used in stir fry.

  6. Beautiful shot, I've raised them almost every year in my garden (as a flowering plant) but have never put them in a salad even though I know you can... Thank you for coming by to share on Rurality Blog Hop #37!

  8. All the fancy restaurants in the San Fran area use nasturtiums in their salads...but the prices in supermarkets are outrageous. I've never planted them but I've been tempted to pluck a few cascading over fences on my walks....figure I could wash the dog urine off easily enough. So far, I haven't, though.
