Rocket | Organic Microgreen & Sprouting Seed


Rocket | Organic Microgreen & Sprouting Seed

- +

Rocket is fast and easy to grow with a strong robust flavour. Great in sandwiches, salads or as a garnish. Let grow to trueleaf stage for a larger crop more suitable for salads. 

As rocket is a mucilaginous seed, it is not suited to jar sprouting as it can inhibit drainage and lead to issues. 

Latin name: Eruca sativa

Health Benefits:  High in vitamins B,C,E, K. Good for boosting immune system


Microgreen Instructions:
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Soak: Do not soak
  • Germination time: 3 - 4 days
  • Harvest from: 8 - 12 days
  • Flavour/texture: Peppery, spicy but sweet taste.  


1. Sow your seeds directly on your prepared growing surface - no need to cover with soil if using.
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.
Please note: Rocket is a mucilaginous seed meaning it develops a sticky, jelly-like coating that can cause the seeds to stick to the top tray during germination. Take care when inspecting.
3. Keep weighed until the seedlings have germinated and are beginning to push against the weight.
4. Place in blackout when the seedlings are about 2cm tall - use blackout to stretch your seedlings to your desired length.
5. Place in a sunny location or under grow lights to green up your microgreens.
6. Harvest as soon as the seed leaves (cotelydons) have developed fully.

Sprouting Instructions:

Due to rocket being a mucilaginous seed, we do not recommend it for jar sprouting.
