Arugula/Rucola/Rocket. Whichever name you use, arugula has become an essential ingredient in salads. It is nutty, spicy, and slightly peppery. Make frequent plantings every 2-3 weeks for continuous harvest, and cut it when the leaves are still small, 4-6 inches. Direct seed about 1 inch apart and arugula will be ready in just 38-40 days.

I ordered this variety of Arugala in 2006 and have used it every spring and fall since. I store the seed in the refrigerator and it is still viable and a great performer. It has a nice, spicy, nutty flavor and adds a kick to salads and sandwiches. I harvest by cutting the leaves and allowing the plant to continue to produce for several months.
