These sunny, wonderful little flowers originated in South America and were widely used by the Meso-Americans for urinary tract infections, kidney problems and for their general antibiotic action. The leaves were used to prevent scurvy, to supplement the daily diet, and add flavor. The peppery leaves were very popular and the seeds were a prized delicacy. In fact, they were considered so important that no home was without a nasturtium plant if they could avoid it. The plants are also so undemanding that they were perfect for the rocky soil of the Andes.
In the 1600’s in England, Nasturtiums were a valued plant and were called Indian Cress (Because of their similarity in flavor to Watercress.) The high Vitamin C content made the so-called “Indian Cress” a highly nutritious complement for the diet. Wherever they have been introduced, these plants have quickly become a firm favorite because of their medicinal and culinary uses.
