(Eruca sativa)

‘The’ standard arugula.

Long, dark, lobed leaves are suitable for salad mix or bunching.

White flowers with dark pink veins make attractive spicy additions to salad mixes.

5-12 day germination. Grow in a greenhouse or protected area following these instructions for Brassica family members: Grow in shallow trays or 20-row flats. Broadcast seed thickly on the media surface with seeds 1/4″- 1/2″ apart, and cover lightly with sowing mix, vermiculite, etc. Ideally, soil temperature should be 75°F until germination, then reduced to 60°F . Maintain air ambient temperature around 60°F. Bottom water or mist to prevent sowing mix from splashing on the seedlings and disturbing roots. Maintain even moisture. Do not allow sowing medium to dry out. If fertilizing, incorporate fertilizer into the sowing mix before sowing, or use a bottom watering system for liquid applications to avoid fertilizer residue on the leaves.
