(Diplotaxis tenuifolia) Has a more pungent taste than regular arugula; leaves are deeply lobed. An Italian favorite.

Review:

This part of my garden is mostly shaded with 30% shade cloth, but the wild arugula gets much more sun than the others, and it's been 105 for a while now. Still going strong (daily watering) and even though it bolts when the plant gets bigger, I just keep cutting it back close to the ground for a resurgence of tender young leaves. I've also tried the surrey arugula, but the wild has a rounder, fuller flavor that I like better. In the heat, the wild does become pretty strongly flavored and a bit bitter, but in a salad, I still find it enjoyable especially if sweetened a bit. Peanuts complement the flavor of arugula; if you haven't tried the combination, do! I've also read that the wild arugula is a perennial and will come up in spring without replanting, but with the way mine is going, I'm not sure it will ever die back (with a waiting period) unless I let it complete the seeding process.

What are the pros? Early germination in January

What are the cons? None yet

Review:

I'll have to edit my review after they mature, but I want to report that they germinated about one week after planting in Phoenix, AZ on January 11, 2018. They get almost a full day of sun on my patio in a container. It's only January 24 now--too soon to say more at this point. They still have just one tiny set of leaves.

What are the pros? Heavy producer/great taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

This plant is fantastic, with fast and heavy production. While it works well in the garden, it is phenomenal in hydroponic systems and can grow year-round. I would highly recommend using this- it's almost a no-fail guarantee!

What are the pros? Taste, easy to grow

What are the cons? bolts quickly

Review:

Yes, this pungent green is an acquired taste, but we wouldn't be without it. It's a great addition to salads, and it's one of the first greens available to us in spring. Very easy to start from seed. However, it is quick to bold when temperatures begin to rise. We let it flower and set seed. It grows back year after year.

Review:

As a leafy green enthusiast, I have to say this is one of my favorites. Taste and texture is really great but that's not the best part if you ask me. Unlike regular arugula varieties, this one is actually a perennial. I planted these once and they keep coming every year, given protection from frost over the winter. By the time I get the first few true leaves on other rockets, I can already get my first harvest from these ones because they're established plants. Just leave it in the ground after they bolt and you'll be smiling next season. Also, when they go to flower, you can harvest all the surprisingly tasty flowers to use in salads as you won't be needing to save seeds. However, as seedlings, these ones are a lot tinier than other varieties and it takes a while for them to get going when grown from seed. Yet if kept happy, they soon catch up to other varieties to say the very least. I won't be sowing another rocket variety from now on.
