Tropica Seeds' Rocket Salad, also known as arugula, is a peppery and nutritious leafy green that thrives in Singapore's tropical climate. This fast-growing variety is perfect for adding a spicy kick to salads and other dishes.

Key Features:

  • Peppery Flavor: Distinctive, spicy taste that enhances salads and dishes.
  • Nutrient-Rich: High in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as antioxidants and minerals.
  • Fast Growing: Quick to mature, allowing for multiple harvests throughout the year.
  • Versatile Uses: Suitable for fresh consumption in salads, sandwiches, and garnishes.

Growing Instructions for Singapore:

  1. Soil Preparation: Use well-drained, fertile soil enriched with organic matter.
  2. Sowing: Sow seeds directly in the garden or in containers. Plant seeds 0.5 cm deep and space 10-15 cm apart in rows 20-30 cm apart.
  3. Germination: Maintain consistent moisture and a temperature of 18-25°C. Seeds typically germinate in 5-10 days.
  4. Sunlight: Rocket salad prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade.
  5. Watering: Water regularly to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overhead watering to prevent fungal diseases.
  6. Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer every 3-4 weeks to support growth.
  7. Maintenance: Harvest leaves when they reach 10-15 cm in length. Regular harvesting encourages new growth.

Pest and Disease Control:

  • Monitor for common pests such as aphids and flea beetles. Use appropriate organic or chemical treatments as needed.
  • Ensure good air circulation and avoid overcrowding to prevent fungal diseases.

Culinary Uses: Rocket salad is incredibly versatile in the kitchen. Its peppery flavor makes it an excellent addition to fresh salads, sandwiches, and as a garnish. It can also be used in pesto, on pizzas, and in pasta dishes for a spicy kick.

Tropica Seeds' Rocket Salad is an ideal choice for Singaporean gardeners, offering a quick-growing, nutritious, and flavorful leafy green that can be harvested year-round.
