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, if you’re an individual grower you can order up to 3 packets of seeds. If you order more than this, you will 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.*
*Community groups and Experienced Growers can order larger quantities, please email us if this is the case.
