Arugula is a peppery nutrition-packed green that grows great all year round. It adds spice to salads and vitamins to sandwiches! You can start harvesting within 20 days. This heirloom is a desert favorite because it thrives in extreme heat of 100+ degrees, dry conditions and poor soil. Importantly, most critters don't like the spicy taste, but we humans sure do!


These easy-to-grow seeds are perfect for planting in the early spring or fall, and thrive in cool weather. Simply sow the seeds directly in the ground about 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart, and they will sprout within 7-10 days. Make sure to water them consistently and keep the soil moist. Once the arugula leaves reach about 3-4 inches long, they are ready to be harvested and enjoyed in salads, sandwiches, or even as a pizza topping.
