25 Alaska Mixed Nasturtium flower Seeds
The common name "nasturtium" comes from the Latin words for "nose-twister," a humorous way of describing a common reaction the taste of the edible leaves. The entire plant has a history of being used for culinary purposes, since even the seeds can be pickled and make an acceptable substitute for capers. Though the first known botanical description of this species comes from the notes of Spanish botanist Nicolas Monardes, Carl Linnaeus gave the genus its name. He called it "Tropaeolum" in reference to an ancient Roman "tropaeum," a pole on which the bloody armor and shields of the defeated enemy were hung; the plant's bright blossoms reminded him of helmets, while the circular leaves looked similar to shields.
To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub one side of each seed lightly with sandpaper and soak them in warm water overnight. Mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Sow the seed in early spring, planting just below the surface of the soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually takes place within 7-14 days.
