Additional Information

Culture: Prefers cool temperatures; direct seed as early as possible in spring. Optimum germination temp 40–55°. Bolts in heat; avoid the heat and grow as a fall crop, or make succession plantings every 1-2 weeks. Use row covers to discourage flea beetles. Let part of a spring crop go to seed and get a self-sown September and October patch that is delicious and has no flea beetle damage! A prime ingredient in tangy mesclun mixes. Frequent watering will reduce its pungency. Suitable for microgreens.

Saving Seed: Saving arugula seed is easy! Let your spring sowing of arugula bolt. The flowers develop into narrow seed pods. Once pods dry on the stems, they can be easily broken open for seed.
