Rocket microgreen is perhaps the most popular salad green in the world! Equally the most popular ingredient in salad mixes. The same mild peppery taste can now be enjoyed in microgreen format.
Rocket microgreen taste intensifies the smaller that you harvest the plants, with taller plants being milder.
Rocket is a fast-growing microgreen and will be ready to eat from day 5 onwards.
Please note that Rocket is a mucilaginous seed so it can only be grown as a microgreen. Not suitable for sprouting.
How to grow Rocket Microgreen Seeds:
3 x Growing trays
Rocket Wild Seeds
Culture - For Growing As A Microgreen
1. Sow your seeds directly on thoroughly moistened medium
2. Place a tray directly on the seeds and weigh down to ensure good contact with the growing medium and to help the roots dig deep. Mustard is a mucilaginous seed so take care when inspecting your seeds as they may stick to the tray.
3. Keep weighed until the seedlings have germinated and are beginning to push against the weight.
4. Use another tray to blackout the seeds when the seedlings are about 2cm tall - use blackout to stretch your seedlings to your desired length.
5. Remove blackout tray and place in a sunny location
6. Harvest when the plants are between 2.5cm to 7.5cm tall using scissors or a sharp knife and cut just above the medium
