Description
  • Finalist of Plant of the Year 2013 - RHS Chelsea Flower Show
A nasturtium with some restraint! Some 12 years of careful breeding have gone into this exceptional variety after a customer sent Thompson & Morgan an unusual nasturtium with serrated petals. Much more compact than the average annual nasturtium - and generally 'better behaved' in the garden, this is the first bicolour nasturtium with serrated petals. Bred to be sterile, the plants bloom for a much longer time than any other nasturtium and the spectacular bicolour blooms are uniquely perfumed with a lovely sweet and spicy fragrance. Nasturtium 'Fruit Salad' is perfect for hanging baskets or pots and is not currently available from seed! Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Pot up Nasturtium plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Indian Cress plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant nasturtium in full sun, in containers and borders on moist, well drained soil.
More Info
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Once established, Nasturiums require little attention.
