45-50 days. Rocky is a fast-growing wild type arugula that grows in a compact rosette form. Wild arugula has a slightly stronger, more complex flavor than regular arugula. Its flavor can be described as peppery or mustardy with a hint of nuttiness. Most often eaten raw in salads, arugula can also give pizzazz to pizza or be enjoyed simply steamed.
