Arugula

$9.50Price
  • SCIENTIFIC NAME: Eruca sativa, Diplotaxis spp.

    CULTURE: Arugula prefers a fertile, well-drained soil, with a pH range of 6.0-6.8 in full sun to part shade. Germination should take 5-7 days. Keep soil moist to slow bolting. For a continual supply, plant every 2-3 weeks.

    SEEDING: Direct seed 1/8" deep from early spring onward at 30-50 seeds/ft

    HARVESTING: For bunching, cut just above soil level. For baby leaf, clip leaves for cut-and-come-again. After plants flower, the leaves can still be used but taste is sharper. Flowers are also edible.
