We've brought a new distinctive taste to a salad favourite. Traditional rocket types offer a hot peppery flavour, but our exclusive Wasabi Rocket adds a taste of Japan with the unique fiery flavour of the wasabi root in quick and easy to grow salad leaf form. Our Wasabi Rocket can be harvested as a baby leaf within weeks of sowing or left to mature into a full leaf alongside your cut and come again salad varieties - either way the flavour is just as distinctive. Sow some every couple of weeks, and grow on the windowsill through autumn and winter for a cheap year round supply.
Previously only available in select supermarket salad bags, be the first to grow this wonderful new salad addition in the UK before the top chefs get their hands on it. Add a kick to salads, sandwiches and sushi, or use it with any dish that requires horseradish or wasabi paste. You'll be amazed at how much flavour is packed into each leaf. Height and spread: 25cm (10").

Direct sow rocket seeds from April to September outdoors or October to March under glass, into well prepared, moist, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills 45cm (18") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin rocket seedlings to 23cm (9") apart, or leave un-thinned and harvest as 'baby salad' leaves or as a 'cut and come again' crop. Sowings made in late summer will continue cropping into winter if protected by cloches, or if sown in frames, under glass, or in pots on the windowsill.
Rocket must be kept well watered during hot, dry weather to reduce bolting and prevent the leaves becoming hot and inedible. Harvest young rocket leaves as required picking only a few leaves from each plant. As the flower buds appear pinch them out to prolong cropping. Rocket flower buds and shoots can be eaten but have a much hotter flavour.
