This unique salad rocket variety has an exceptional pungent flavor very similar to wild rocket. The leaves develop an attractive distinct red vein during hot, dry growing conditions. Young leaves add peppery flavor to salads, while mature leaves can be used for braising. Called Wild Rocket in most of Europe, this slow-bolting variety tolerates heat and thrives in cool weather. 30-40 days from transplant. OP.
Care: Plant 10-12″ apart in rows 18-36″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop.
