Description

Eruca sativa

An easy-to-grow salad leaf with a strong, distinctive flavour. The leaves can be harvested young as a cut-and-come-again crop. Unfortunately, the plants are quick to bolt, but this doesn't mean harvesting must stop – the leaves can still be used by picking them off the flowering stems. They are especially good as a salad ingredient, and highly-prized as a cooked green among the Pakistanis.

Sow March to September for outdoor crops and September to October for overwintering in tunnels and greenhouses. The plants are quite small, so leave 15cm between them each way.

Approx. number of seeds per pack: 800
