A fast-growing arugula seed; adult leaves can be harvested within four weeks of sowing. Its characteristic zing is irreplaceable and beloved by many. From the seedling stage until early maturity, it can be harvested for fresh eating in salads and garnishing sandwiches; when it gets older, it can be braised in olive oil for a terrific cooked green that is great with pasta dishes.
Materials: arugula seeds in a paper packet
Made by: Hudson Valley Seed Company
Made in: New York, USA
Specifications: 500 seeds
Use: Direct sow as soon as soil can be worked. If transplanting, do so promptly; seedlings grow quickly and checked growth can cause premature bolting. Harvest when young for fresh use and when slightly older for braising. It can become stressed in mid-summer but loves cool weather and will thrive throughout the rest of the season, making it ideal for succession sowing. Arugula is very hardy and will grow through winter with the protection of a cold frame or low tunnel.
