The variety Ruca (Salatrauke) is a very quick growing salad plant with a very short growing cycle (like radish). Can be grown outdoors or under glass. Very undemanding. For early and late planting dates, because of the quick development a good extension to the wild rocket. Specially good for a mixed salad. Milder in taste than the wild rocket. Also available as seed discs.
