They also quickly established themselves as a culinary delight - their seeds being used as capers and their leaves used in salads. Bernard McMahon introduced the nasturtium into the United States in 1806. In 1931, the first semi-double nasturtium was discovered outside of a Mexican convent by John Bodger who cultivated it and named its descendants "GOLDEN GLEAM".
