Description

A wild rocket type, with mild, peppery taste and elegant, highly cut leaves. This variety is slow to bolt, so can be sown and grown all year even in the heat of summer and will crop, with cloche protection, all winter too. Just unroll the seed tape and harvest regularly from 4-6 weeks on.

Care Tips

Keep moist and harvest outer leaves regularly to prevent running to seed. From late April-August protect from flea beetle with a physical barrier of fleece. Shade in hot weather prevents the leaves from becoming tough and unpalatable.
