Organic arugula is a fast-growing, cool-season green of Mediterranean origin. It is ideal for salads, sandwiches, frittatas, and pizzas, and can be grown in partial shade. Its sharp, distinctive, nutty flavor is best when picked young. Water moderately and evenly to provide continuous moisture and cool the soil but avoid water logging. Self-sowing and relatively cold-tolerant.
Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked and danger of hard frost has passed. For a continuous supply of arugula, sow every three weeks throughout the summer. Best grown in cooler weather. Plant in full sun or partial shade 1” apart and 1/4” in depth. Germination in 5-7 days. Thin to 1-6" apart.
