This plant goes by a lot of names like arugula, eruca or just rocket. And in India, it is called by the name Gargeer. Although is it native to the Mediterranean region, it has become widely popular around the world as a leafy green used predominantly in salads or dressing in many cuisines. Because of their pungent, peppery taste, you can use them on pizzas or in salads, especially with mozarella cheese and sundried tomatoes. However, in addition to the leaves, the flowers, young seed pods and mature seeds are all edible. They prefer cool climate and can be ready to harvest in about 2 months.
