Arugula, Ice-Bred

Sale price Price $6.00 Regular price $6.00

Arugula are not usually available until Early April. This fast growing leafy green loves the cool spring and fall. It history stretches back to roman times, and its our immigrants from Southern Italy that give it the name we use today. You might also be familiar with it as "Rocket" which comes from the Northern Italian 'ruchetta' via France and England. By whichever name you call it, it features a great peppery flavor that is milder when the leaves are harvest young. Bred by Brett Grohsgal in Maryland, and then later in Connecticut, this arugula can handle cold temperatures and tastes great doing it! It comes to us through the seed preservation efforts of William Woys Weaver at the Roughwood Seed Collection.
