Diplotaxis tenufolia. Imagine – this wild arugula does not bolt all summer long, leaves are held up off the ground and are easy to pick for salads and sandwiches. This open, lacy-leaved plant has a bit more of the well-loved arugula “bite” and is great for snacking. Gather leaves all summer, watch for self-sown plants around the big one, and gather those leaves in winter. Wild Arugula Arugula seeds have slow germination rates and are very tiny, meaning that they are best started in the house or greenhouse and transplanted to the garden when it is big enough to handle. Set them where they are to grow as they have deep roots. Diplotaxis is the original, traditional Italian HEIRLOOM variety of arugula.
Matures in 35-50 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
