Nasturtium -

A plant native to South America, which is cultivated here principally for its brilliant blossoms. It possesses considerable merit as a salad plant, especially for blending with other salads, the leaves, young shoots and flower buds having an agreeably pungent flavor. The pickled seed-pods are frequently substituted for capers.

Botanically, the name "Nasturtium" is applied preferably to the Watercress.
