Introduction: Nasturtium Leaves are visually-arresting, versatile and vitamin-rich. Their sweet aroma and delicious flavor compliment any dish from soups and entrées, to salads and desserts. The size of each leaf is ±4 cm in diameter. Tip: to perk up the leaves, keep them in a small vase with water. Also known as Indian Cress, Nasturtiums have traditionally been used as a hair growth stimulant and continue to appear on labels of high-end care products today. During the Victorian era, Nasturtium Leaves were eaten to prevent scurvy since they are rich in Vitamin C. Nasturtium Leaves contain mustard oil, which has been used as a natural antibiotic. They can be chewed to soothe a sore throat and to ward off colds and flus. The leaves have also been known to alleviate respiratory congestion and to stimulate the digestive system. The leaves are cultivated in a socially responsible manner using environmentally friendly biological crop-protection systems..
