Watercress is also called Scurvy Grass?

Watercress (Nasturtium officinale) is a fast-growing, aquatic or semi-aquatic, perennial plant native to Europe and Asia, and one of the oldest known leaf vegetables consumed by humans.
The hollow stems of watercress are floating, and the leaves are segmented with small, white and green flowers are produced in clusters. Watercress contains significant amounts of iron, calcium, iodine, and folic acid, in addition to vitamins A and C.
Nourish your body with watercress as it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, this watery plant is also high on taste.
Get to know why it’s called a two-in-one vegetable.
It’s a two-in-one vegetable because the leaves have the velvety floppiness of lamb’s lettuce, while the stalks have the snap of bean sprouts. Watercress has a wonderfully peppery flavour.
Watercress is related to mustard and is one of the strongest-tasting salad leaves available. It has a pungent, slightly bitter, peppery flavour.
When added to salads, a tangle of watercress lends a blast of deepest green taste and bouncy volume. It makes sandwiches lively and fresh. Providing you have a blender, no soup is simpler than watercress.
