Sylvetta Arugula


In stock


(Diplotaxis spp) AKA Wild Arugula.  When we grew our first garden in 2003, sylvetta arugula was included and we fell in love with the intense arugula flavour and perennial nature of this salad green.  It’s taken us a few years to build up our patch in our unheated greenhouse, which is where we find it really shines.  Able to grow amply in the shoulder seasons, when flea beetles aren’t around, it forms a small shrub and readily self seeds from its near continuous (and edible) blooms.  Native to the Mediterranean region, Sylvetta is documented to have been harvested since prehistoric times.  Approx. 200 seeds per packet.
