(Eruca sativa) Astro is an arugula selected for less deeply lobed (strap leaf) leaf shape and mild flavor. This variety is exceptionally vigorous, quick to germinate and ready to cut as baby leaf in just 3 weeks! We grow a lot of arugula at our farm and love Astro for its lush green color, tender texture, and nice mild (for arugula) flavor. We feel as though this is the best and most vigorous strain available for baby leaf production. Our strain comes from some of the original breeding stock before it declined in quality from years of commercial production.
21 days baby, 35 days mature. UO
