Product Description

This a perennial type of rocket that will come up year after year. The leaves are more serrated and pungent than the regular salad rocket and have a lovely mild flavour when picked young. Very easy to grow. Plants have an upright habit and are grown for their deeply serrated leaves which have a strong peppery flavour similar to rocket but far more pungent. Is most commonly used as a salad green but can also be used cooked; makes an excellent addition to stir fries. Very popular in Italian cuisine. Can be grown in containers. Can be grown for baby leaf. Also known as Perennial Rocket, Wall Rocket, White Rocket and Sylvetta. Note is seed count calculated by weight for accuracy due to seed size.
