I only recently learnt that you could eat these, and so planted some - they have gone wild and I used them in this recipe.

They are quite nice but not very strong, and I will continue using them in salads and for decoration. Easy to grow and easy to use!

Oh yes!! They have a lovely peppery taste which I really enjoy in salads!
I have eaten salads with them in, and some Asian fusion meals which used them for decoration. Don't ask me what they tasted like as I can't recall. I'm sure that if they were strong, or tasted terrible, I would have remembered, so they must have tasted nice.
I have seen them used but not in any meal ive had. Ill try them even once.
I don't believe I have,but have heard the great stories during the depression, and how people had them on bread with salt and pepper...and were wonderful! I want to try them.Maybe for 2017 :)
No I have never tasted them

Yes - as part of a floral salad. Very pretty, tasty and colourful! There is a whole list of flowers which are edible although it is best to google search them before using as only certain parts of some flowers can be used. Some of them are sunflowers, pansies, carnations, begonias, marigolds, chrysanthemums, clover, violets, geraniums, roses, hibiscus, honeysuckle, lilac and peony There are many more but these are just a few.
Yes. I ate them as a child. There are many edible flowers and I am happy to include them on n salads and on cheese or fruit platters. My sister helped a woman who grows edible flowers for the restaurant industry so she has given me helpful information. Nasturtium leaves and flowers can be used to make a delicious flavoured butter that is lovely on savoury scones.
Many times. The leaves can be quite hot. I haven't grown any for years . . . amazing that they survive my black thumbs, actually.

My aunt was an abstract artist, & back in the '50's to the '70's she would put nasturtium flowers & leaves & into her amazing salads that she used to make.

No, I've never eaten nasturtiums, never thought to.
As a child, remember 'sucking the honey' from the flower!
Ooooooh. Heaven. Thanks donjo . . .I had forgotten that! :-))
by Rice
Donjo, No, not from nasturtiums, but I've often only sucked the honey from the honeysuckle flowers!
by Miro
No I have never eaten but want to try.
I don't think this plant grows in my hometown. If I do get the chance to eat that, I would. I mean, I'm not a picky eater and I would try anything as long as there are no dire consequences. The last flower I ate was a chrysanthemum. There's a resort in a nearby island that serves flower salad.
No. I can't say I know what these are.
