Other Types of Greens

IP117 Wasabi Arugula
New! Great wasabi flavor.
Wasabi arugula gives the same nose-tingling sensation as the wasabi condiment used in Japanese dishes. Leaves are spoon-shaped with a toothed margin. This variety is best for very early spring and fall plantings as well as winter planting in regions with mild winters. Late spring and summer plantings have a tendency to bolt. Excellent bunched or to add a unique punch to salad mixes.
Jim's Note: Arugula prefers a fertile, well-drained soil, with a pH range of 6.0-6.8 in full sun to part shade. Arugula does prefer cool conditions and is hardy enough to over-winter in many locations from late summer and early fall sowings. It is also well-adapted for growing in cool greenhouses and high tunnels for winter production. Direct seed 1/8" deep from early spring onward @ 30-50 seeds/ft. Germination should take 5-7 days. Keep soil moist to slow bolting. For a continual supply, plant every 2-3 weeks until 1 month prior to first avg. frost date.
