Grow Rocket salad seeds for a rich, peppery tasting leafy green that makes excellent salads. The Salad rocket herb is also known as rocket, arugula, roquette, rugula, and rucola. Roquette Arugula is generally used raw in salads, but also cooked as a vegetable with pastas or meats for a delicious taste like spinach. Four-petaled, white, purple-veined flowers top its flower stalks. Sow these herb seeds and enjoy a harvest 40 days later! Salad rocket performs best in spring to early summer. After that time, plant it under the shade of an airy tree (not dense shade), or under shade cloth. It is not fussy at all, although too much drought and summer heat will cause the leaves to be smaller and more peppery.
