Eruca sativa Annual nutritous green rich in potassium and vitamin C. Grown for centuries by ordinary folk before being unjustly derided as an "elitist" salad ingredient. During times of better propaganda the Roman poet Virgil wrote in "Moretum" that arugula "excites the sexual desire of drowsy people". While such actions haven't been approved by the F.D.A. and we make no claims about the drowsy among us arugula is an easy to grow green for the garden and excellent fresh in salads or as a mildly pungent braising green. ~100 seeds.
