Detailed Product Info

If you already like arugula, you'll like wild arugula even more. If you already dislike arugula, well, steer clear. Wild arugula has an amplified arugula flavor, while its smaller leaves and pretty color make for a refined impression. Grab a small handful and toss chopped into a salad for a terrific arugula bite, or steam older leaves for use as a side green.

Growing Instructions

Wild arugula can be direct sown as soon as soil can be worked. If transplanting, transplant promptly; the fast-growing seedlings resent checked growth, which can cause them to bolt prematurely. Harvest when young for fresh use, when slightly older for braising. The cool-loving green doesn't particularly like mid-summer, but it will do well most of the season: keep on sowing! Very hardy and will grow through winter with the protection of a cold frame or low tunnel.
