MORE ABOUT ARUGULA:

(Eruca sativa)  Also known as roquette or rocket, arugula's distinctly flavored leaves have become a standard in gourmet salad mixes.  Plants mature quickly producing baby arugula in just a couple weeks and long, dark green, lobed leaves in about 30 days.  Cold-tolerant and well-suited for spring or fall planting with harvests extended into late fall/early winter when cold frames are used.  Arugula's small stature and compact root system also make it an excellent choice for growing in pots. 30 days to harvest.  Approx. 500 seeds/pkt.

GROWING ARUGULA FROM SEED:

CULTURE:  Arugula will thrive in pretty much any well-drained, fairly fertile location.  It is best-suited to early spring, fall, and winter planting.  Summer plantings of arugula have a very strong flavor and bolt more quickly.

SOWING:  Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked.  Plant seeds 1/4" deep, 1" apart in rows 18" apart.  Germination will occur in 7-14 days.  For continual harvests, successive sowings can be made every 2-3 weeks throughout spring and fall.

INSECT PESTS: Flea beetles can be controlled using floating row covers.  Although they are rarely a serious enough problem to warrant treatment, insecticidal soap may be effective in managing particularly damaging infestations of flea beetles.

DISEASES AND PROBLEMS: Bacterial leaf spot and downy mildew are diseases that can affect arugula, but are rarely an issue.  Providing ample space between plants to maximize airflow will help prevent disease.

HARVEST AND STORAGE:  For baby arugula, clip individual leaves from the plants or cut entire plants as you thin out the stand.  To harvest mature arugula, clip whole plants just above the soil line.  Flowers are also edible.

SAVING SEED:  Allow flowers to mature and produce siliques.  Harvest flower stalk once a majority of the siliques have become dry and papery.  Shake into a paper bag or pillow case and winnow to remove chaff.
