Holla-Fresh Rocket is a slender salad green, deep green in colour and high in potassium, iron, and vitamin C.
It has a spicy, bitter flavour that compliments other salad leaves. The older and larger the leaves are, the stronger the flavour will be.
Rocket also has a high nutritional value, and can be used in all salads, stir fries, with vegetables, and as an alternative to lettuce in burgers.
How to store Rocket:
You can store rocket in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to a week.
