Wild Rocket is a short lived perennial leafy vegetable with thin, lance shaped, bright to dark green leaves, which are deeply lobed. The foliage is aromatic when crushed.
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.
Wild 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 50 days
