Mashua is a tuberous Nasturtium, extremely hardy and well suited to our cold temperate maritime climate in Ireland. It provides an abundant of leaves throughout the growing season and flowers late in the season. These are both mild and are very tasty addition to any salad. The tubers are spicy and best grated into a salad or roasted whole in the oven.

In spring, when it’s still cold and not much else is growing, mashua takes off to an early start and it almost takes over the place with it’s climbing shoots. In fall it flowers and retracts back into fresh tuberous stored underground for the winter well protected from the frost. No artificial storage and replanting required, same as the potato and the oca when using wood chip mulch. In our gardens they have been coming back year after year more vigorous. The Latin name is: (Tropaeolum tuberosum)

  1. Hi Martin and Bianca .

    They look awesome !
    Do you ever eat them raw ?
    Would you say they taste different from the white variety ?

    Best wishes ,

    1. Hi, You can eat them raw but it doesn’t take much as they are intense. We haven’t tried eating other varieties yet, need to propagate them some more first. 😀
