Astro Arugula (Eruca sativa)
Astro Arugula seeds grow a plant with strap-like leaves rather than lobed leaves. The flavor is milder than normal arugula. Astro is ideal for baby greens in the early spring and fall, and it can also be grown in the winter because it is cold hardy. In just 21 days, baby greens are able to harvest. Arugula is an excellent choice for growing vegetables and herbs. In full sun to part shade, arugula prefers a fertile, well-drained soil with a pH range of 6.0-6.8.
