Edible Flowers

Bring beauty into your meals


Culinary: The flowers and foliage of nasturtiums are edible. They have a lovely spicey taste that brings more flavor to a fresh garden salad.  The trailing nasturtiums variety is perfect for hanging baskets or along a raised bed cascading over. If flowers are not picked seeds are also edible too. 

Medicinal Uses: Nasturtium contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. It is also a good source for iron, zinc, and copper. It possesses hypotensive, antifungal, antimicrobial, anticancer, and expectorant capabilities. Nasturtium also has dermatological benefit for hair and skin [1].

How to Cultivate and Harvest

Planting: Growing nasturtium is easy. The seeds are large and can be direct sowed in the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Nasturtiums do not like to be transplanted, so pick the location carefully. The flowers are prolific and can be harvested. Leave some flowers unharvested for the production of seeds that easily self-sow for the next season. 

Harvesting: If you would like to keep the seeds to plant in a new location next season, pick the round green seeds after the flowers have withered, place them on a paper towel on a counter, and let them dry over the course of several weeks until they are shriveled and brown. Then store in an envelope until the planting season next season.


Nasturtium comes originally from the Andes Mountains of South America where it was used as a medicinal herb and a salad vegetable by the Incas. It was brought to Europe in the Columbian Exchange. It went as far as England by the end of the sixteenth century and became popular in the Versailles palace of Louis XIV, the Sun King of France [2].
