Arugula (38 Days)

11 reviews

A somewhat pungent salad green. Young leaves are sort of nutty and mustardy. Older leaves can become unpleasantly bitter, but the flowers are edible and attract pollinators. It is wise to protect this plant from flea beetles with a row cover. This is the best variety for our March-April planting and May-June harvests. Wild Arugula is better for the rest of the summer.

500 seeds



Eruca sativa

Germination: 3-7 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-70ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep

Sowing Outdoors: Early spring through late summer and fall. Sow heavy seeded rows, 40-50 seeds per foot. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a continuous harvest. 

How much does a packet plant: 10-12 foot single row  

Harvest: Start cutting leaves at  2-4". 

Tips:Plant in fertile, well drained soil. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting if needed. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Use row cover to control flea beetles. When arugula bolts the flowers are edible and attract pollinators

arugula (38 days) In my opinion it was later then I liked to plant my arugula. So the crop has not been that great. However I have enjoyed every leaf I have harvested. May throw some seed in again in a couple of weeks when it cools off and see if I get a better crop.

Of course it has been a crazy year. By the time I had ordered my seed it was rather late and it took awhile to get the seed. ( not complaining). I always look forward to your seed catalog! will order earlier for next year.

Always helpful and efficient. The arugula came up gang busters. Just the right tang. Yummmy.

Sowed indoors and germinated well. After growing under a grow light for 2 wks, it was transplanted in the garden in a cold frame. Taste is delish! Peppery but not too hot, it makes a wonderful salad.

Not much yield but tasty

Fast delivery. Arugula didn’t yield as much as I hoped for, but the taste is good.
