    Description Briscoe's Tips Use Them!
     
    Eruca sativa

    A member of the Mustard family, Arugula is a leafy green that packs a peppery punch! Similar to Watercress in flavor, Arugula has edible, aromatic leaves and a spicier flavor than most greens. Often eaten raw in salads, Arugula also tastes great when cooked. If you're adding it to a pizza, pasta, or pesto, make sure to add it last or just after the meal is done cooking to prevent the leaves from withering.

    Native to the Mediterranean, Arugula has been used for its culinary value since Ancient Romans used it in salads, oils and  as an aphrodisiac. Highly rich in Vitamins C and A as well as Potassium, Arugula is similar in shape to spinach and contains very little calories. Harvest the leaves while they're young for a more mild flavor, picking from the outside of the plant first. Over harvesting will kill this hardy little edible but it self seeds and renews its leaves very quickly.

    Arugula prefers moist but not wet soil and is very low maintenance. Easily sown and grown in your garden or in a container or pot for indoor or patio gardens, Arugula is a delicious and nutritious edible that will spice up your recipes all year long!

    Uses: Arugula's edible green leaves are highly nutritious in Vitamins A and C, and add a peppery flavor to salads, pizzas and pastas. Also an appetite stimulant and helpful digestive aid.

    Tips: Arugula bolts very quickly once the weather heats up, so to keep plenty of this tasty green on hand, it is best to succession plant. Once it goes to seed, the leaves take on a more intense, bitter taste.

    Sandwich maker May 29, 2014
    Reviewer: Sarah from Hopewell, VA United States  
    My arugula is healthy and grows steadily. I love it used as a bed for meats. I just plate the meat on top of a fresh bed of arugula and serve it. It also makes a terrific substitute for lettuce in a BLT. If add some basil with the arugula to the bacon and tomato and you have a whole new sandwich.

    Awesome!! May 16, 2014
    Reviewer: Katharine from Altamonte Springs, FL United States  
    I bought 4 of these and they arrived so healthy and huge! They were each a salad when they got here! I planted them in full sun in a row and they are all thriving. I am so happy with all my plants from The Growers Exchange and highly recommend them to everyone.
