Rocket Wasabi seeds
A new development with a flavour that is surprisingly similar to wasabi or horse radish. Compared to standard Wild Rocket, this strain is more vigorous, has a different leaf shape and is considerably more spicy. Leaves are a deep green colour and have a strong texture and can be harvested for baby leaf at 30-35 days from sowing.

When to sow
When to Sow Rocket Wasabi Seeds
April to August
Where to Sow
Sow thinly in a prepared seed bed 0.5cm (1/4") deep in rows 25-30cm (10-12") apart. Keep the soil moist. Sow in succession every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh young leaves.
What to do Next
Thin seedlings to 10cm (4") apart when large enough to handle. Cut leaves from each plant, leaving some leaves on each so that they re-grow. You will often get 3-4 cuttings per plant.
May to October
Rich in antioxidants.
Early sowings can be made in containers in a cold glasshouse from February, or if short of space during the year sow the seeds thinly into containers on a sunny patio. Always cut leaves rather than pull off.
