Product Overview

Diplotaxis tenuifolia

If you love arugula, you are going to love this one. Complex, spicy flavor excites your palate when added to salads, sandwiches, and even pesto.

Wild perennial arugula has a slightly stronger, more complex flavor and is slower growing than other arugula. Its peppery flavor adds a zing to salads but it is also delicious on pizza or as a pesto. Harvest as baby greens or grow to full size. A good container variety, and the flowers are edible, too! Recipe inside packet for wild arugula and walnut pesto.

Variety Info

2"–6" dark green, deeply lobed leaves with four to ten small lateral lobes and a large terminal lobe. Shaped much like an elongated oak leaf, with a distinct red midrib and veins. Flavor can be described as rich and peppery. Edible flowers are yellow.
