Wasabi Arugula - Get Your Spiciness On!

Japanese wasabi is a special root that only grows in very specific climates, but now you can have the wasabi flavor right in your garden with this specially selected variety of arugula. Wasabi Arugula is a knock-off of the true flavor of wasabi right down to the tongue tingly and sinus clearing punch.

Details

Wasabi arugula was developed through natural selection to produce a more peppery flavor than other arugula. Grows 4-6" tall and can be continuously planted for a fresh harvest all season long.

History

The name arugula is an Italian corruption of the Latin word eruca, or "colewort" and reflects this plants Mediterranean origin. Popular in Italian cuisine and grown as an aromatic salad green in Europe for many years, ancient Romans were also known to have eaten its' leaves and used the seeds for flavoring oils.

Uses

Has a rather nutty flavor when the shoots are young, becoming sharper, peppery or mustard like when older. Used with other herbs such as sorrel and garlic in soups and stews. It is currently enjoying resurgence as a popular salad green as all of the plant is edible with a long harvest season.

Growing Tip

Arugula if left to flower will self-seed prolifically.
