Arugula Rocket Salad Roquette Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds (LG)

Eruca sativa

Item #7612


30-45 Days. Arugula has been described as peppery, mustardy, and spicy, but we just call it delicious! Excellent as a baby green when picked young; add new flavors and textures to your everyday salad, or simply toss arugula with balsamic vinegar and olive oil and top with fresh-grated Parmesan for a distinctive Italian take on salads. Leaves can also be steamed as a side dish or added to many other dishes, such as pizza. Also a good container variety. This large packet has a generous amount of seed for successive sowings so you can have arugula available fresh from the garden for many months.

This packet sows approximately ten 10-foot rows, or twenty successive sowings of 5-foot rows.
