Arugula Selvatica Seeds
Wild type with dark serrated leaves.
Shelf life after harvest is very long.
Favorite of both chefs and growers.
A popular green used in salads for its distinct peppery, sweet taste.
Provides the same punch to a salad as chopped green onions, but without their aftertaste.
Notched green leaves resemble chicory - catalogna in shape and texture.
HARVEST: 40 - 50 days from sowing
.Plants form a small rosette heart and lots of external leaves that may be individually cut or the whole plant can be harvested at a young stage.
Older plants become slightly bitter in taste after 55 days - so a continuous seeding schedule should be maintained throughout the spring and late summer for a fresh supply of greens.
As leaves are harvested fresh growth will appear.
Start picking the leaves when they are 2 in./5 cm long.
Keep cutting the plant until it starts to produce flowers - then pull the old plant out and re-seed.
Flowers are also edible in salads
