eruca vesicaria ssp.sativa
story: this is a straightforward leafy green. it produces well, and we find it to be peppery and delicious- a great addition to summer salad.
when to sow: sow seeds from april to september. you can sow seeds every 2-3 weeks for a steady supply.
requirements: rocket likes some sun, and tolerates partial shade. soil needs to drain well and be enriched.
harvesting: this variety is ready for harvest 4 weeks after sowing. it can be treated as a cut-and-come-again green, or pick a few leaves from each plant.
please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to first-season growers. if you order more than this, you are likely to receive just three packs to begin with. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
