ISHS Acta Horticulturae 318: II International Symposium on Specialty and Exotic Vegetable Crops

AQUATIC VEGETABLES TO BE CULTIVATED IN PONDS AND MARSHES

Authors:   D. FRITZ, H. ORTMEIER, R. HABEGGER
Abstract:
Some aquatic plants growing in water or marshes are cultivated vegetable crops mainly of subtropical or tropical regions such as, for example, Trapa bicornis (water caltrop), or Eleocharis tuberosa (water chestnut), or Oenanthe javanica (water dropwort), or Nelumbo nucifera (lotus flower). Only few of such well-known crops, provided they are annual ones and not very heat requiring, could be grown in the temperate climates of Northern Europe. We, therefore, selected from literature such plants which are able to also grow in temperate climates in water and marshes, which can be used as vegetables, and which seem to fit for home gardens. Often it are ornamental plants, or wild vegetables which as yet have not been cultivated. They were recorded in two tables. This literature review shall incite future research, and help making a new 'garden hobby' attractive.
