Rocket (Arugula) is a nutritious green & leafy. It is a low growing annual salad green & features dandelion-like juicy, long, lobular leaves with green veins. Young plant features plain light green leaves, which seem identical to that of spinach. Tender leaves have a sweet, nutty, taste. The Romans used rocket mixed with herbs such as lavender & dill, & put them in special sauces. Salad Rocket is a great source of iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, beta-carotene, sodium, dietary fibre & vitamins A, B, C and E.
