Rocket is well-known for being an antioxidant-rich, detoxifying superfood. Now you can get all the benefits of Rocket multiplied in sprout form. Research shows eating half a cup of rocket sprouts gives the same nutritional benefits as eating an entire bag of Rocket! Studies suggest that Rocket contains chemicals that slow the progression of cancer, improves muscle oxygenation during exercise, and helps with a huge range of conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. It is absolutely delicious and peppery just like rocket – we love it. This seed can be used to grow rocket greens and sprouts but remember they are a mucilaginous seed so they behave differently to other seeds you may be used to working with.

Have a question?
Could you clarify the sprouting instructions?
“Sprouting Instructions: Soak no Rinse no Plant day 1 Harvest 5 to 14 days Yield variable Shelf life 2 years”
Does that mean I need to plant the seeds in soil after a day soaking?
Rocket needs to be grown like a microgreen so you will need a medium such as soil or coconut coir. Plant 1 – 2 teaspoons of seed (for a 12x12cm tray) in your choice of medium, ensuring it is very well moistened. Cover the tray with a plate or another tray to keep the light out and ensure it doesn’t dry out. Keep it moist but don’t soak it and once the seeds start growing leaves remove the cover so they have light, possibly even move them to a well-lit location as they will need it to grow well and harvest when you are happy with the size of them.
