rochet2 (s.xiv2)


[ FEW: 3,242a eruca; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

This plant name, presumably a diminutive of and aphetic form of eruc (‘rocket’), appears here earlier than in English rocket n.4 (MED: rokette n.) or Continental French roquette1 (TLF), where it is unattested until the sixteenth century.
