Today I bring you one of the videos that you have most requested and that I wanted to share with you the most, I will teach you how to recognize this beautiful plant in your terrace, orchard or garden.
Many people have it and don’t know it, it is truly a treasure of Euro-Asian origin that is still grown in Italy and parts of Spain and incorporated by horticulturists of yesteryear in across America it can be found in every country in the region although with the advent of more commercial crops it was gradually forgotten and today it is considered a weed in many places.
You can get your seeds from Amazon, EBay, MercadoLibre or any other platform…it will depend on the country you live in. It is best to search for it by its scientific name: Diplotaxis tenuifolia and belongs to the Brassicaceae family. Other common names by which it is recognized are rocket or wild rocket, wild rocket, or wall rocket.
Its flavor is a little spicy, stronger than that of common arugula. The whole plant, stem, roots and leaves are eaten. It contains vitamins such as A, B, C and K and nutrients such as iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. It is a grass that can be eaten all year round and does not need to be reseeded.
