Arugula

Arugula

(47 days) Open-pollinated. Also known as Roquette or Rocket. Musky green and its piquant blossoms will spice up your salad. The best-tasting and most bolt-resistant of the strains in our 2017 trials. (We didn’t include Ice-Bred in those tests; we know its complex flavor and its heftier price.). Stood temperatures down to 14° double-covered under Agribon+ AG-19. 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 in heat; avoid the heat and grow as a fall crop, or make succession plantings every 1-2 weeks. Use row covers to discourage flea beetles. Let part of a spring crop go to seed and get 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.
