Sylvetta

Sylvetta Arugula

(21 days baby, 50 days mature) Diplotaxis erucoides Open-pollinated. Also known as Rucola Selvatica, a must for extraordinary cold-season salads. A wild form of arugula, very deeply lobed dark green narrow leaves grow steadily, reaching 3" in 3 weeks, the perfect length for a 7" salad plate. Nutty, sweet, crisp and moderately spicy, Sylvetta grows foliage right to the rib base, no stem to trim. Please your restaurant accounts with this beautifully uniform arugula strain. Slower growing, smaller and more pungent than regular arugula. Out-competed 8 other commercial-production strains in our summer endurance trial. Highly recommended for market farmers and gardeners alike. Eliot Coleman lists it as one of his winter staples in The Winter Harvest Handbook. ~110,000 seeds/oz. Cold-hardy through at least part of the Maine winter.

Additional Information

Arugula

Eruca sativa

116 oz packet sows 60 ft; 1 oz, 960 ft. ~15,000 seeds/oz. Also known as Roquette or Rocket. Musky green and its piquant blossoms will spice up your salad.

Culture: Prefers cool temperatures; direct seed as early as possible in spring. Bolts readily in heat; much better as a fall crop or succession planted. Use row covers to discourage flea beetles. I always let my spring crop grow to seed and am rewarded with a self-sown September and October patch that is delicious and has no flea beetle damage! A prime ingredient in tangy mesclun mixes. Frequent watering will reduce its pungency. Suitable for microgreens.

Greens

Days to maturity are from direct seeding.

Culture: When to harvest greens? Research from trials conducted in England and Kenya showed looseleaf lettuce, red chard and arugula harvested in the evening had a longer shelf life than when picked in the morning.
