Sowing and growing arugola

Arugola is one of the easiest vegetables to grow.

The seedlings come up quickly after you sow. Be sure to water regularly: if the plants don't get enough, they'll start to flower.

With some good weather, you can pick the first leaves after just 4 weeks. As long as you leave the center, the plants continue to produce more leaves.

Just don't wait too long to harvest the whole plant. Young leaves are by far the tastiest.

Keep sowing so you can enjoy arugola (almost) all year long.

Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are included in the Planty Gardening app. 

How do you use it?

Arugola leaves are delicious, and the buds and flowers are edible too. The young leaves have a milder taste than the older ones. When the plant starts to flower, the leaves taste spicier.

Young arugola leaves are great raw: for salads, pizza toppings, or healthy sandwiches.

The older leaves, the stems, and flower buds are delicious in mashed potatoes, stews, and stir-fries. Cooking makes the flavor milder.

The yellow flowers don't have a very strong taste, but look beautiful in your salads.

Tip after harvesting: wilting leaves can be revived. Just put them in cold water for a little while.
