This quick germinating arugula shows some heat and cold tolerance, though it prefers the cooler weather of spring and fall. The leaves, which are mildly spicy with a nutty, peppery flavour, can be cut with a knife or scissors and will regrow for more cutting. Astro pairs beautifully with sharp parmesan cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Flea beetles tend to really love this crop in our climate, so you may need to cover your crop with a floating row cover or a protect net for best results. This crop was grown for us by our friend Evalisa, the skilled seed farmer at Root Cellar Gardens in Thunder Bay, Ontario. 25 days to cut leaf stage.
