ASTRO ARUGULA OVERVIEW

Astro grows quickly, is heat tolerant, and provides that signature piquant, peppery flavor that stays mild as the plant matures, unlike other arugula cultivars.

GROWING AND HARVESTING TIPS

Plant Astro anywhere on your farm and harvest greens at 3-6" for milder flavor or leave to grow larger for a more intense peppery taste. As the leaves get bigger, consider tossing with warm pasta or blending into pesto, just watch out for bolting, as this makes the leaves fibrous and astringent.
