Arugula Wasabi flowers are in demand from high-end restaurants and grocery stores; they give the same nose-tingling sensation as the wasabi condiment used in Japanese dishes. Leaves are spoon-shaped with a toothed margin, and also retain a wasabi flavor. This variety is best for very early spring and fall plantings as well as winter planting in regions with mild winters.
Care: Plant 10-12″ apart in rows 18-36″ apart in full sun and cool moist soil. Harvest leaves as needed.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop. See our Fall & Winter Vegetable Guide for specific planting/harvest times & freeze-out temperatures.
