Rucola

Variety overview

Rocket Wild: (Rucola selvatica, Diplotaxis, Brassicaceae)
Annual, height 30 cm.
Tsw: 0,5 g Seed count per 10 g = about 20000 seeds.
Sowing: Over 0°C under glass all year, outdoors from end of March to beginning of September.
Seeds required: 10 g/100 m², for pot growing 10 g/1000 pots.
Cultivation: Space rows 15-20 cm apart. Compared to R. coltivata the germination and growth is slow.
R. selvatica requires a well prepared seed bed - a fine ‘tilth’(crumbly structure) and well consolidated, always keep moist until germination is complete. Temperatures of around 20°C are most suitable. An even germination (also under glass) can be achieved with the use of Agryl-webbing. Begins to flower in summer very quickly, therefore to harvest continuously prevent any interuption of growth which could cause plants to grow generatively.
Harvesting: Depending on the season and required size of plant. For young leaf production about 8 weeks after sowing.
Use: As a real enrichment for the kitchen with definitely a better and more intensive flavour than Rucola coltivata. In all types of salads.
