NASTURTIUM The Edible Flower - Great Taste but Icky Texture

Nasturtium - the Edible Flower


Nasturtiums are such a fun flower - so colorful and they really are edible!
My favorite part is the leaf because to me it resembles a lily pad.


The nasturtium flower has a very peppery taste and it is delicious in any garden fresh salad.  However, the texture of the nasturtium is kind of creepy - I imagine that the texture of these petals are not much different than having velvet or suede in your mouth.


All flowers in these pictures were grown in my garden & all pictures were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) - see copyright at the end of this post.


ENJOY the pictures!

  2. Love the post. I have always wanted to try Nasturtiums in my salads, but haven't done it so far. It looks lovely in your Zucchini dish; you should post the recipe. Thanks for sharing.
    Blessings,
