Description of herb

Garden nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) - an annual herb, 15 to 40 cm high, with a recumbent, creeping, branched stem reaching a length of up to 5 m comes from areas in Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.

It blooms from June to October and the fruit is a three-capsule capsule with seeds.

The undeniable advantage of this plant is that both the leaf and the flower and the fruit (seed) are edible in the fresh state. The seeds can be eaten fresh from the plant in the fresh state, if it seems too hot, we can add them to salads or sliced, for example, in spreads, or on bread and butter. The seeds can also be pickled in vinegar and used instead of capers.

If this ornamental plant inhabits your garden, do not hesitate to taste it - for bread and butter, it is a refreshing medicinal delicacy. If you don't have it in the garden, definitely include it in your menu anyway.
