Nasturtium Blue Pepe is a unique European variety bred specifically for culinary use. The name comes from its beautiful steel-blue leaves with reddish-purple undersides. The flowers are also edible; their bright red color makes them an attractive addition to salads and is ideal for garnishing stir-fries. The leaves have a slightly peppery taste reminiscent of watercress. The flavor becomes spicier as the flowers grow in sunnier, warmer weather. The flowers have a less intense flavor than the leaves, but they add a dramatic, colorful touch to any recipe. Nasturtiums were first cultivated in Peru and were introduced to Europe by the Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century.
