Super easy to grow and quick to establish, Turkish rocket is a popular perennial vegetable in the Brassica family. According to Aaron Parker, who produced these seeds in Maine (at his Edgewood Nursey), the edible leaves are only "OK", "nothing too special," however the flower buds are prolific and very tasty, similar to broccoli raab. The pretty yellow flowers attract syrphid flies and other beneficial insects.
Growing Tips: Prefers full sun, but can tolerate some shade as well. For faster germination, scarify seeds and soak in warm water for 24 hrs.
