Arugula is a productive, cool season, annual salad green that works best in spring and fall, and can be managed all winter under cloche protection. In hot weather, arugula will go to seed. Continue reading below to find out how to grow arugula from seed.

Latin: Eruca sativa (Wild Arugula is Diplotaxis tenuifolia)
Family: Brassicaceae

Difficulty: Easy

We Recommend: Astro (MS483). All arugulas are good, but Astro stands out. Grow this variety in cool weather, or try it as a microgreen at any time of year.
For Urban Gardeners: Try Adagio (MS503) in containers on your balcony. Its natural resistance to bolting means it works a little better in containers than some of the others.
