This wild variety of arugula is the same bright green leaves that you would expect. However, this variety has a stronger flavor. It also has deeper lobes in the leaves than astro arugula, which make it have a distinct look.
This is our premier variety of wild arugula. Arugula can quickly turn bitter if left to over grow, so be sure to harvest when your leaves are 3-4". This plant does not do well with multiple harvests, so be sure to cut the whole plant when harvesting.
