(Eruca sativa)
This outstanding arugula selection if distinguished by very attractive, deeply lobbed, oakleaf-shaped leaves. In our garden trials, Runway tastes deliciously tangy byt is slightly less pungent than regular arugula. Peppery, sharp-flavored arugula (a.k.a. rocket or roquette), provides a wonderful punch of piquant flavor to any green salad or a scrumptious contrast tossed with fresh sliced fruit or served under meat, chicken or fish just hot off the barbecue.

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

In early spring, sow arugula seeds directly into well-worked garden soil 1 to 2 inches apart in rows 10 inches apart in full sun, or in a place that gets afternoon shade. Cover seeds 1/2 inch deep and firm soil over seeds. Keep seed bed evenly moist until seedlings emerge in 5 to 7 days. Make new sowings every 2 weeks until early summer for a constant supply of fresh leaves. Young leaves are ready to begin harvesting in 3 to 4 weeks. In hottest summer areas, wait to sow again in late summer for fall use, as extreme heat makes leaves very pungent.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Arugula grows so quickly we recommend sowing in place rather than transplanting. Thin seedlings 2 to 3 inches apart when plants are large enough to handle.


GROWING NOTES

Begin harvesting by thinning little seedlings to use in salads when they are several inches tall, leaving remaining seedlings to mature 2 to 3 inches apart. Either pick individual leaves when they are 3 to 4 inches long, or snip leaves about 1 inch above the crown and let plants regrow for more harvests.
