Nasturzio o Tropeolo.

Tropaeolum majus is a pernnial plant in its native country (Perù). Here it is considered an annual one because of cold winter.
It has therapeutic functions as antibiotic and anti-scurvy thanks to its huge amount of vitC.

Its leaves and flowers are edible, and its flavour is similar to cress thanks to sulphur components.
