Our selection of Eruca sativa boasts less deeply-lobed leaves and a milder flavor than wild arugula. The medium green leaves of Astro are wide at the top, with a slight cut to the outer edge. They have a pleasant, nutty flavor that will grow stronger as the weather warms. Slow to bolt; however, once it flowers, the tiny blooms can also be added to salads for a peppery flavor. Early maturing yet heat tolerant, Astro is ready to harvest from direct sow for baby leaf at 32-35 days and for mature leaves at 52- 55 days. Organic and non-organic seeds available.
- Strong, zesty flavor
