CARE INSTRUCTIONSSylvetta arugula is an easy-to-grow leafy vegetable. It will spread if allowed to flower and go to seed. Otherwise, prune off flowers as flowering will change the taste of the greens.
A slower growing and smaller variety than rocket arugula, the Sylvetta Arugula still boasts the spicy, nutty flavor expected of arugula plants. It is the favored variety of chefs and can be identified by its deeply lobed, dark green leaves. It will self-seed if allowed to flower.
