Arugula Rocket / Roquette Seeds
Arugula is also known as roquette or rocket, and adds a delightful nutty nip to salads. It is generally mixed in with other salad greens that compliment its strong flavor. It is rich in vitamin C and potassium. Some describe it's flavor as peppery, some as tangy or just nutty. Arugula is a member of the cabbage family, so keep it in with other cabbage family plants in your crop rotation. Arugula, like other brassicias, is a cool-season crop hardy to frosts and light freezes.
Germination: 1/4" depth, 1" apart when average night-time temperatures are above 45 degrees F. The arugula seeds should germinate in about a week. When the seedlings are 1" tall, thin them so that the plants are spaced 3" to 4" apart. To remove them, simply snip the plants at the soil line with a pair of scissors.
