Wasabi

Arugula Seed

Product ID: 3865

Great wasabi flavor.

Wasabi arugula gives the same nose-tingling sensation as the wasabi condiment used in Japanese dishes. Leaves are spoon-shaped with a toothed margin. This variety is very quick to bolt. The harvested growth points add a unique punch to salad mixes. Not suitable for bunching.

• Edible Flowers: Harvest the yellow flowers as they appear. Sprinkle them over salads or add to vegetable stir-fries. Flavor is spicy and nutty. Popular choice for brightening up salad mixes.

Avg. 116,100 seeds/oz. Packet: 500 seeds.

CULTURE: Arugula prefers a fertile, well-drained soil, with a pH range of 6.0-6.8 in full sun to part shade. Arugula prefers cool conditions and is hardy enough to over-winter in many locations from late summer and early fall sowings. It is also well-adapted for growing in cool greenhouses and high tunnels for winter production. Direct seed 1/8" deep from early spring onward @ 30-50 seeds/ft. Germination should take 5-7 days. Keep soil moist to slow bolting. For a continual supply, plant every 2-3 weeks until 1 month prior to first avg. frost date.
HARVEST: For bunching, cut just above soil level. For baby leaf, clip leaves for cut-and-come-again. After plants flower, the leaves can still be used but taste is sharper. Flowers are also edible.
PEST CONTROL:
Flea beetles can be controlled by covering the crop with floating row covers (see Index) from the day of sowing. Prevent diseases with crop rotation and sanitation.
