This variety has been especially bred to incorporate intermediate resistance to downy mildew. Trials throughout Europe, Oceania and USA have shown significantly reduced levels of mildew in the field compared to standard wild rocket varieties. The mildew tolerance makes this an ideal choice for main season and autumn productions.
Wildfire® was bred to be distinctive both in its flavour profile and its leaf shape. The flavour is hot and peppery; the leaves are less uniform than standard wild rocket giving this variety a more wild appearance.
