Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus)

The peppery flowers and leaves are good in salads.

They also go especially well with cream cheese.

They're great on pizza, and I like them in pasta sauces too.

After nasturtium plants have finished flowering, you can pickle the seed pods in vinegar or brine to make mock capers.
