Eruca sativa
HERB-SALAD ROCKET-ARUGULA is a nutritious low growing annual salad green which features dandelion-like juicy, long, lobular leaves with green veins. Young plant features plain light green leaves, which seem identical to that of spinach. Tender leaves have a sweet, nutty, taste. The Romans used rocket mixed with herbs such as lavender & dill, & put them in special sauces. Salad Rocket is a great source of iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, beta-carotene, sodium, dietary fibre & vitamins A, B, C and E.

Scatter the seed lightly over the soil surface, then lightly cover the seed with a sprinkling of soil to barely cover the seed, then lightly water it with a mist sprayer. Keep the soil moist & the seeds should come up soon. Rocket is incredibly fast to sprout.
