|Harvest Season ||Simply pick the young leaves and the plant will keep generating new ones for months. older leaves are a bit tougher and hotter. Pick over the whole row rather than just one or two plants as this would weaken them.
As the flower buds appear pinch them out to prolong cropping. The flowers are small, white with dark centers and can be used in the salad for a light piquant flavour. Roquette is ready to harvest in 40 days. |
