Arugula ‘Ortolani’

Eruca vesicaria ssp. sativa

Italian variety selected for its consistently good flavor and growth habit.

Arugula has a nutty peppery taste and is a great addition to salads, eaten alone, or lightly wilted over a fresh pizza. This variety has a slightly milder flavor and is slower to bolt. Arugula is best planted in spring and fall as summer heat increases the peppery taste.

Arugula prefers moist, well-drained soil. Fall planted arugula may overwinter for the following spring.
