Wow! I've never tried the leaves. The petals are quite delicious - very subtle.

I've heard the leaves are peppery tasting!

Just make sure they've been grown without pesticides, etc!

Bon Appetit!

The leaves and flowers are delicious...peppery, spicy. Nice addition to salads for sure.

This is from GardenGuides...

Nasturtiums are an attractive and nutritious addition to salads, and they make a beautiful garnish. Nasturtiums have 10 times the vitamin C of lettuce, so add a gererous portion of leaves and flowers to your salad mixes. Grind the seeds in a pepper mill, and use as you would black pepper.
