Taste and Usage
Salty Fingers® is the Koppert Cress brand name for an edible leaf. Salty Fingers is a decorative, but tasty ingredient. The crunchy texture and salty, slightly bitter taste are a valuable addition to the salty products. Salty Fingers tingles the taste buds and makes a good combination with meat or mushrooms. It's a good choice with fish or shellfish dishes. Salty Fingers makes an exciting complement to the taste experience.

Origin
Salty Fingers is a plant growing along the coasts of tropical America and Asia. It is very salt tolerant, and surprisingly nutritious. It contains proteins, carbohydrates and oil. A number of species was therefore eaten as a vegetable by the local population.
