MISSILE

« Back

A salad rocket type, MISSILE provides growers with the possibility of year round production. MISSILE produces very thick leaves through Winter whilst still able to meet specifications for leaf size during the warmer months. With excellent leaf colour, MISSILE develops into a darker green during periods of cold. MISSILE has an excellent shelf life and a mild peppery flavour ideally suited to salad mixes.
