Wasabi Arugula

92% of 100

About 35 days to maturity. For those chasing the unmistakable tingle and mouth-watering flavor of true wasabi, look no further than the Wasabi arugula, a leafy crop that is becoming popular in Japan. The 4-8 inch tall plants with unassuming, softly serrated leaves are a delightfully spot-on replacement for that pungent horseradish-y condiment that is so loved with sushi. The Wasabi arugula is perfect for salads, for topping sandwiches and is so open to creative culinary interpretation! This short and stout plant is quick to mature, but also fairly quick to bolt; sowing multiple successions and eating the delicious flowers will help you enjoy this plant for a longer season! Wasabi arugula also provides much more vitamins A and C than other arugula varieties, which may be thanks to the fact that it is a different genus and species from traditional arugula.
