Net Wt. 650 mg (Approx. 290 to 310 seeds)

Organic seed for an open pollinated heirloom native to the Mediterranean region that has been grown as a vegetable since Roman times. Arugula a member of the Mustard family is now used as a leafy vegetable that looks very similar to lettuce and is a staple for a salad mix. Once a rare delicacy, it is now common on the American dinner table. A favorite baby leaf vegetable used in microgreen mixes. The tender, smooth, lobed leaves have a nutty flavor when young and a robust, rich peppery taste when more mature. The plant grows to about 2 1/2 feet tall by 1 foot wide but the leaves are best when cut at 2 to 3 inches long. The flowers are edible and can be used as an edible garnish. The leaves are used to add zest to salads and as a seasoning for cooked dishes. Grows best in cool weather. High in vitamin C. Plant a few seeds every two weeks during spring for a long, delicious harvest.
