Nasturtium officinale, also known as Nasturtium nasturtium-aquaticum, Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum, and Sisymbrium nasturtium-aquaticum, commonly known as watercress, is a water plant whose leaves and seeds are edible raw or cooked. The leaves should not be eaten raw if harvested from water that is exposed to runoff from domesticated animals as they may contain parasites. Boiling kills the parasites.
