GEMINI

« Back

GEMINI is a wild rocket that provides an alternative alongside Rocky and Tricia for growers wanting a fast growing variety. A Diplotaxis type (true wild rocket), GEMINI is extremly vigorous and is fast to establish, making it ideally suited to cooler situations. It is dark green in colour and develops a very thick leaf ensuring an extended shelf life. GEMINI has a deeply serrated leaf, more so than even Rocky, and has a sharp, peppery, wild rocket taste. While not suitable for Summer harvest due to bolting pressure, GEMINI can be harvested in Autumn, Winter and Spring in hydroponic systems and Spring and Autumn in field situations.
