Empress of IndiaNasturtium Seed

1824

Product ID: 1824

Victorian era heirloom.

Scarlet flowers stand out amid the very dark green foliage of this old-fashioned favorite. Use the leaves, pods, and flowers in salads or as garnishes, or stuff the flowers with soft cheese. The flowers can be minced and added to butters and the immature seed heads can be pickled. Nasturtiums are a popular choice for adding color to salad mix. The compact, mounded plant habit makes it especially suitable for containers or as an edging plant. Also known as garden nasturtium and Indian cress. Ht. 16-20". Avg. 200 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
