Cultivated Rocket or Arugula rocket is a fast growing annual leafy vegetable with balanced pungent, light green leaves. The foliage is aromatic when crushed.One of the most appreciated leaf herb into Italian cuisine
Young leaves may be 6-8 cm long, while the mature leaves reach 16-20 cm long. The leaves form a dense rosette at the base of branching stems, which may reach 50-80 cm high. The thin stems are almost succulent and are both leafless and hairless.
Arugula Rocket has a long tap root and bright yellow flowers, with four petals, appear from spring to summer. It may spread by both seed or by the branching tap root. Wild Rocket is a relative of radish and watercress, with similarities in appearance and taste.
Harvest starts from 35 days
Rocket will grow in full sun to part shade and prefers a good water supply, although it will tolerate dry conditions.
The best flavour and texture is obtained from providing rich, well-drained soil and a great deal of water.
Planting & Growing Instructions
Sow the seeds on the surface of the soil. Regularly apply nutrients and plant protection.
Height after growth
Used as seeds only and not for consumption.Seeds to be sown before expiry date
While sowing seeds make sure the soil is damp and not wet. Water the seeds as the soil starts to dry. It should always be moist, but never wet or muddy. Do not water the seeds if the soil is already moist to the touch, as overwatering your plant can be just as harmful as underwatering.
Keep the seedling tray in bright filtered light to begin with. Slowly introduce the plant to morning sun and bring it back in before the afternoon sun sets in. In a weeks time you can put it in direct sunlight.
