Rocket Seeds 'WILD ROCKET' ORGANIC
Seeds per pack; approx. 250
Harvest; April - Nov
Rocket is very fast, easy to grow and tastes wonderful. This is our favourite salad leaf, we use it in salads, sandwiches, as a garnish and even on pizza.
Rocket works in containers/pots, or in the smallest spaces. The flavour is spicy and aromatic, but not too hot, and picked fresh from the garden there is nothing better. It is also high in antioxidants, vitamin C and iron.
Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia) is a different species to the regular salad rocket types. It is part of the Mustard Family and is a perennial. The leaves are smaller with a much more intense flavour and it is a lot slower growing and less prone to bolting. This is a sought after salad leaf where flavour is important.
Sow the seeds from March-September in shallow drills 5-10cm apart for cut and come again. Or 15cm apart for mature plants and thin to 10-15cm apart.
The leaves will become stronger and more peppery with age.
