Description – Probably the hottest tasting wild rocket! Wildfire has broader leaves than traditional wild rocket and its robust upright habit helps to keep the deep green, serrated leaves clean.. The leaves pack a powerful punch with an exceptional, intense flavour.
Sowing – Sow thinly, 13mm(1/2in) deep in drills 45cm (18in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart and use as ‘baby leaves’. Must be kept well watered or will run to seed and be inedible.
Growing – Harvest young leaves as required., picking only a few from each plant. Pinch out flower buds to prolong cropping into winter if given protection by cloches.
Harvest – May to October
