Tropaeolum or nasturtium are a popular garden plant that flowers late into the autumn. All parts of the nasturtium can be eaten. The leaves flowers and make an exotic and colourful addition to salads . Nasturtium has a peppery taste similar to watercress and it can also be added to stir fry to enhance its flavour. The flowers contain about 130 mg vitamin C per 100 grams (3.5 oz),[20] about the same amount as is contained in parsley.[21] They contain up to 45 mg of lutein per 100 gr,[22] which is the highest amount found in any edible plant.

The green seed pods of the nasturtium can be dropped into spiced vinegar to produce a garnish sometimes used in place of capers.
