Watercress

Watercress (Nasturtium offinale) – Watercress grows wild throughout the northern hemisphere, and is a valuable food product in many parts of the world. Often used as a salad green and valued for its mild peppery flavour that doesn’t overpower foods, it is also used purely as a flavour component in soups and sauces. An aquatic plant that will grow on land given abundant moisture, the flavour and tenderness of plants grown this way doesn’t compare to those grown fully submerged, and is therefore not recommended for the home gardener.
