Nasturtiums originate in Peru like the potatoes. They where first introduced to Europe in the Seventeenth century. They are also a members of the Brassica family and they are Legumes. So they extract nitrogen from the air and release it through root nodules. Legumes actually put something back into the soil
They are edible and contain vitamins C and D. They mix up the crop rotation self seeding everywhere. But I like them and nasty insects don't like their peppery smell.
Anyone else like Nassies? Do you have any good recipes? I am sure Sol does?
