Arugula is an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. Over the years, these sharp and tangy leaves have become a characteristic element of Italian cuisine. In a salad, light green arugula leaves are the perfect addition to give flavor. And if you grow arugula at home, you can have a constant supply!

Historians believe that the rocket was once called “Orot”, a green leaf mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible. In fact, this beautiful plant was grown all over the Mediterranean during the Roman Empire.

Also popular in the Middle Ages in the UK, it was after called a rocket or garden rocket. The French called it Rocket and may have inspired the name Rocket.

This is a fascinating plant, and we think you will enjoy growing and eating these greens!

All about the rocket

Eruca vesicaria) is the botanical name of arugula. At one time it was also called eruka sativa. In fact, there are almost 40 different botanical names that have been used over time to refer to it. However, if it sounds confusing, you can call it Garden Arugula, Arugula, Cabbage, Rugula, Arugula or even just Arugula.

Its origins lie in the Mediterranean Sea and extend from Turkey, Syria and Lebanon east to Portugal and Morocco. As a member of the Brassicaceae family, it shares its genetics with other cruciferous vegetables, from cabbage and cabbage to mustard and broccoli. These salads, more focused on the family mustard side, have entered the international market.

This green annual is often between a foot and two feet tall, although it can reach from 8″ to nearly 40″ in height. The leaves are pinnate, often 2-3 inches long, attached to thin stems. They are often described as a longer and narrower lettuce leaf. The rocket forms inflorescences of white flowers with purple veins passing through them. When the flowers begin to sow, they form long dense pods.

Leaves and flowers are eaten. The seeds can also be eaten, but instead they are often pressed to produce Taramira oil.

Some sources claim that the Romans called the rocket an aphrodisiac. It is said that because of this statement, he was banned from the monastery gardens. However, it was assumed that the salad would calm the passions, and therefore arugula was often added to complex salads so as not to inflame someone too much!

Aphrodisiac or not, this vitamin-rich green color is certainly a popular dish of Italian cuisine, and has also gained popularity all over the world.

Plants for arugula

There is no doubt that you want to give your rocket a good start. How to grow it is shown below!

When to plant

For most producers, two seasons are ideal for growing arugula. Plant arugula seeds as soon as it is possible to cultivate the soil in the spring for an early harvest. If it dies in the summer, wait until the weather cools down and transplant it in the fall to get a second harvest. As soon as the soil begins to freeze, it dies again, so harvest before the onset of cold weather.

If you want to get a continuous harvest, sow seeds every 2-3 weeks throughout the season so that you have an endless supply of fresh leaves to eat.

Where to plant

You need a place in the backyard, protected from extreme heat or cold, but at least partially exposed to the sun. This plant forgives slightly shaded conditions if there is bright ambient light, but feels bad in extreme heat, so choose your location accordingly.

Growing in containers is also an option. If you grow it in containers, you can move your plant to optimize its placement according to your local weather conditions. It will grow well both indoors and outdoors if it has enough bright light.

How to plant

Sow the seeds to a depth of about ¼ inch and about an inch apart. When several rows are planted, arrange the rows at least 10 inches apart to ensure good outward development and enough room for healthy root development.

Care

Now that you know how arugula planting works, what conditions do you need to grow arugula in your garden to get the best harvest in spring or autumn? Let’s discuss what your plants need.

Water And Humidity

Uniform and uniform humidity is best suited for growing arugula. Water the plants in the morning, as they have enough time to dry the surface of the leaves in the sun. Mulching the garden can also help keep the soil moist and reduce the frequency of watering. A drip irrigation system or a submersible hose under the mulch can facilitate watering.

Field

A soil rich in humus and well drained is what your plants will prefer. However, they are resistant to various types of garden soil if they retain moisture.

If you have sandy soil, heavily replace it with compost and horse or cow manure to provide additional moisture retention. Screw castings can also be used for additional moisture retention.

Hard clay should also be broken down with a lot of compost or manure. This reduces the chance that it will become hard and prevent root development.

The PH of your launch vehicle should be neutral, the range from 6.0 to 7.0 is considered ideal. But they also tolerate moderate acidity or weak alkalinity well.

Fertilizer

Provide arugula plants with balanced fertilizers so that they have everything they need to develop healthy young leaves. The dry granular mixture can be applied once or twice during the growing season (spring or autumn). You can also use liquid fertilizers diluted at the base of the plant to keep the greens healthy.
