Wildfire/Wasabi is a perennial variety of Wild Rocket, with deep green, serrated foliage that makes an attractive garnish for any dish and mesclun-style salad. An alternative to the usual Rocket, Wild Rocket has a distinctive wasabi taste and its young leaves can be picked in succession. Despite the fact that Wasabi Rocket has never actually met its powerfully punchy namesake, the Wasabi Root, and that it doesn't quite bring tears to your eyes in the same way that the reduced root paste, a popular sushi accompaniment, does, it nevertheless adds a certain taste of the Orient and a dose of horseradish heat to our everyday meals. The leaves impart a real “wow factor” on the tongue. They may look harmless, but a nice surprise for the palate lies hidden within!
