The flowers are replaced by starchy seeds with distinctive toothed ridges, which are released into the water. The seeds are edible picked fresh from the plant or can be dried and added to granola cereals. Very young leaves can be used as salad greens. The genus' name refers to Guilio Pontedera (1688-1757), professor of botany at Padua.
