Roquette – Wild Sylvetta

$3.48

Compared to salad arugula, Sylvetta is slower growing with deeply lobed leaves with a lovely spicy flavour. Sought after by chefs. Young leaves will wake up your salads while more mature leaves are delicious braised. Perennial Sylvetta does not bolt as quickly as salad arugula. Heat and cold tolerant.
