Surrey Arugula Seeds
gets its name from Surrey, England. Surrey Arugula
is a cross between astro arugula and wild arugula, taking the best from both and offering a quick growing plant that reduces risk of disease. This arugula
is easily recognized by its jagged deep lobed leaves and strong peppery and mustard taste. It is similar in appearance and flavor to its parent plant, wild arugula, yet it grows more upright with heavily serrated leaves. Due to Surrey's
fast growth, the risk of Downey Mildew is diminished.
has long been cultivated in Southern Europe and Italy and as early as the 19th century it was naturalized in North America.
The leaves are usually eaten raw but they can also be cooked like spinach or used as a topping. Like most salad greens, Arugula
is very low in calories and is high in vitamins A and C.
is best grown in cool, moist conditions especially during the fall and spring months. In hot weather, it may flower, but don't worry, the flowers are also edible and have a great taste.
needs a lot of water and well drained soil. If the leaves are clipped from the outside of the plant it will keep growing and will produce 3-5 cuttings per year.
