Now known (to British botanists, at least) as Eruca vesicaria, or garden 
rocket. Other names (ancient and modern) are aeruca rocket, eruka psevnaya 
(in Russian), oruga (in Spanish), rocket gentle, rockette (in French), roketa 
(in Greek), Roman rocket, rucola gentile (in Italian), ruke (in German), salad 
rocket, sciatica cress and shinlock.

Regards,

Roger
