Baby Leaf - young leaves - are leaf vegetables that are eaten raw at a very early development stage. They contain plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, in some cases even 40 times more than the mature plants. Young leaves are one of the foundations of a healthy, low calorie diet. They look great and have a distinct, concentrated taste.

Rocket (Eruca sativa) is a quickly growing annual plant that develops rosettes of basal leaves. These leaves are edible and have a savoury, slightly nutty taste. They grow 7.5 - 10 cm long, are juicy, corrugated, slightly dentate and resemble common dandelion leaves. Regular consumption of rocket leaves positively affects your well being. They strengthen the body, act antibacterial and support functioning of the digestive system. They are also attributed with anti-cancer and scurvy-preventing effects, too. Rocket leaves contain strong antioxidants, are rich in kalium calcium, magnesium, iron, folic acid, vitamins C, E and K, as well as valuable dyes, such as lutein, carotene and zeaxanthin. Rocket leaves are a great, attractive addition to salads, sandwiches, pizza, cottage cheese and sauces, meat and fish. Young, tender rocket leaves may be also eaten raw, without any seasoning nor dressing.

Rocket seeds may be sown all year long to containers or all vegetation season directly to the ground. Seeds are sown 0.5 cm deep by hand or in rows a few centimetres apart. First leaves may be harvested already 3 - 4 weeks after the sow when they have reached 8 - 10 cm in height. The leaves grow back rapidly after the harvest, making 2 - 3 harvests possible from one sow. Rocket does not require much in terms of the soil, it is, however, sensitive to drought and requires regular watering. It is resistant to temperature drops, even below -4°C. It will grow effectively both on sunny and partially shady sites.

Where do our seeds come from?

All of the seeds sold in our shop come from the best producers from across the European Union. Thanks to a long-standing cooperation with them we were able to develop the most adequate storing and dispatch conditions, guaranteeing that you always receive fresh and carefully tested batches of seeds. Exclusion of the middlemen from the whole process not only makes it possible for us to avoid sending out-of-date seeds that might have been lying too long on a warehouse shelf, but also ensures the most attractive price for top quality products.

The quality control process

All our seeds must pass a four-stage quality control process.

Stage one begins with a careful selection of the suppliers. Than we proceed with controlling their crops, foreign producers are not excluded from the quality control process. Plants are checked at every stage of their development: when they start to grow, during blooming and when they start bearing fruit (seeds). At this stage the most important thing is to ensure proper spacing of the plants. Thanks to that obtaining the desired morphological characteristics of each particular species or variety, such as colour, height and shape, can be ensured.

Stage two consists of a detailed verification tests in laboratory conditions. With the use of the highest quality equipment by the highly qualified staff, our suppliers perform more than 30 000 quality checks annually. The seeds that do not meet our requirements are subject to technological refining processes, including drying, cleaning, upgrading and testing again.

Stage three starts with sowing seeds in selected control plots. That way we obtain valuable, exact information concerning their germination that must be maintained at an appropriate level. Simultaneously, the varietal identity of each species is checked at this stage.

Stage four takes place in our warehouses and consists of eliminating seeds that have been stored for too long on our shelves and replacing them with new batches. Each package is stamped with a unique batch number and also with the sow-by-date.

All four stages combined allow us to state with confidence that the seeds we deliver comply with the highest standards and have completed all required control stages with flying colours.
