Wild arugula

Tangy, spicy herb in the mustard family, also known as wild rocket. Tastes great together with milder types of salad, pasta, on sandwiches and pizza. You can make pesto with arugula as an alternative to the traditional basil.

Wild arugula has very spiky leaves and a stronger flavour than cultivated arugula.  The young green leaves are harvested regularly. Wild arugula has a longer development time than cultivated and is more heat tolerant. It will continue to produce leaves even if allowed to flower - although they will have a stronger flavour and may become slightly bitter.

Can be grown indoors in a pot all year round, the leaves then have a milder taste.

Place in sun to partial shade in nutrient-rich, loose and porous soil. Does not tolerate standing water.
