Product Overview

Diplotaxis tenuifolia

Walk on the wild side! If you like arugula, you are going to love this one! Complex, spicy flavor and very easy to grow from seed.

'Rocky' is a fast-growing, wild-type arugula that grows in a compact rosette form. Wild arugula has a slightly stronger, more complex flavor than regular arugula, and is perennial in USDA zones 6—10. Its flavor can be described as peppery or mustardy with a hint of nuttiness. Most often eaten raw in salads, arugula can also give pizzazz to pizza or be enjoyed simply steamed.

Variety Info

2"–6" soft, green leaves. Wild arugula has more deeply-lobed leaves than common arugula. Edible flowers are yellow.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 40°F; ideally 50°–70°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 4 to 6 weeks before your average first fall frost date. Mild Climates: Sow in fall for winter harvest.
