The standard salad arugula. Long, dark, lobed leaves are suitable for salad mix or bunching. Flavor is spicy and nutty. Popular choice for brightening up salad mixes.
The white flowers with dark pink veins are edible, and can be harvested as they appear. Sprinkle them over salads or add to vegetable stir-fries.
For baby leaf, clip leaves for cut-and-come-again. After plants flower, the leaves can still be used but taste is sharper.
Grown year-round in the Tower Garden®. Arugula prefers a pH range of 6.0-6.8 in full sun to part shade. Arugula prefers cool conditions and is hardy enough to over-winter in many locations from late summer and early fall. To reduce heat stress, provide some shade for warm-season plantings
