Arugula/Rucula Cultivated - Certified Organic (115-1B)

$4.00

Arugula Coltivata means Cultivated Arugula. Certified Organic Seed. 10 gram packet = approximately 5,000 seeds.

Arugula Coltivata packets have approximately 500 seeds per gram.

Arugula has been grown since Roman times, reputedly as an aphrodisiac, and is used widely in Italian cuisine. It's great as a salad ingredient, or simply eaten alone with a sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. In Italy, it is often wilted over hot pizza or in pasta just before serving. Ischia, an island in the Bay of Naples, has a traditional digestif liqueur made from arugula, called rucolino. Arugula pesto is made just like basil pesto, and is a good substitute when the weather is too cold for basil. Arugula survives low temperatures and is usually the first and last salad green in the garden. Under row cover, it will survive all but the coldest winters.

Arugula coltivata means cultivated Arugula. It is the quickest variety, ready to eat in about 30-40 days from direct sowing. In cool weather, the flavor is mild but as the temperature rises, so does the "peppery" flavor. It is best when picked in the baby to adolescent stage, 4 to 6 inches tall. 

Sprinkle seeds about an inch apart. Replant frequently — every 2-3 weeks — for a long season of harvest. Our huge packets provide plenty of seed!

grew well + keeps growning here in the Northeast US. Very Spicy though...I'd prefer one not as strong, but if you like it that way, then this one is for you.

I bought 4 items for my winter garden. All are doing beautifully. Rucola has a special place in my heart because it not only produces prolifically, but reseeds as well!
