Rocket: A Mediterranean Crop For The World from the International Plant Genetic Resources InstituteEruca sativa Miller: a diploid, annual, species which flowers in spring and whose seeds are ready for collecting in late spring. It seems to prefer rather rich soils even through it can be found mixed with ruderal flora in very marginal areas. It is frequently cultivated, although demestication cannot be considered complete. A wild type, known as subspecies vesicaria (L.) Cav., is also rather well represented in the Mediterranean flora.
