Hey, didn't know that you could eat those. We have them at our community garden growing like hell

It depends, in English there are two plant genera called nasturtium. I mean this one, genus tropaeolum. You can definitely eat the stems leaves and flowers. I don't know if the species in my garden has edible roots, but some species you can also eat the roots. The stems flowers and leaves are spicy like mustard or wasabi. That being said I'm pretty sure you can eat the plants in the genus nasturtium too.

They grow very well in our garden too. We have two extremely large plants, I couldn't harvest half of it.
