Arugula, also known as salad rocket, roquette, rocket salad, salad roquette, roquette salad and tira, is a leafy green, grown as an annual. Leaves are compound and have a spicy, peppery flavor.

Arugula is a cool season vegetable best grown during the spring and fall. Plants mature within two to three months from seeds. Warm temperatures cause plants to bolt.

Grow arugula as you would leaf lettuce.
