Rocket or arugula is an edible annual plant in the family Brassicaceae used as a leaf vegetable for its fresh, tart, bitter, and peppery flavour. Other common names include garden rocket, "ruchtetta", "rucola", "rucoli", "rugula", "colewort", and "roquette".
It is an annual plant growing to 20–100 cm tall. The leaves are deeply pinnately lobed with four to ten small lateral lobes and a large terminal lobe. The flowers are 2–4 cm diameter, arranged in a corymb, with the typical Brassicaceae flower structure; the petals are creamy white with purple veins, and the stamens yellow; the sepals are persistent after the flower opens.
Packet size is approximately 2,000 seeds.

Germination; Can be grown on a windowsill indoors over winter. For outside, sow directly, in rows, into well-drained prepared soil, one seed at a time. A one metre row should be sufficient to get started. Sow 6mm deep, 3cm spacing. Rows 60cm apart. Water in with a watering can with rose attachment. Germination takes 7 days.
Growing; When large enough to handle thin to 20cm, thinnings can be used in salads. This variety is quick to establish itself even in cold soils. Water well in dry weather.
Cultivation; If flea beetles are nibbling holes in your rocket cover the row with horticultural fleece. Pick regularly for tender leaves. Older leaves are tougher and hotter. Regular watering will delay bolting. Late summer sowings can be cropped through winter under cloches.
