Maybe it is more dangerous to believe certain stories. The wild rocket is tastier, like I said above. It grows in dry and sunny places, like a road side. A country road, or a rocky path. I would not pick it up where there is traffic. It is the same thing with blackberries.
But one has to wash it before eating.
