    What is Roquette Arugula?


    Roquette arugula (Eruca sativa), also known simply as rocket or arugula, belongs to the Brassicaceae family. It’s native to the Mediterranean region and has been used in culinary preparations for centuries. The plant has compact, upright growth with deeply lobed, dark green leaves. Roquette arugula typically reaches a height of about 2 feet (60 cm) when fully grown. Its leaves are deeply serrated and have a unique spicy taste that intensifies as the plant matures.


    Growing Conditions

    Arugula is a cool-season crop that thrives in temperatures between 50 to 70°F (10 to 21°C). It can tolerate slightly warmer conditions. Plant it in well-drained soil with ample sunlight. You can grow it in both garden beds and containers.


    Planting and Harvesting

    Sow arugula seeds directly in the soil or container. Young leaves can be harvested as soon as they reach a suitable size (usually around 4 to 6 weeks after sowing). Harvest before the plant starts flowering to avoid bitterness. Regular harvesting encourages continuous leaf production. Roquette arugula is commonly used in salads, sandwiches, and as a pizza or pasta topping.


    Flavor Profile

    Roquette arugula has a distinct, robust taste. It’s peppery and slightly bitter, adding a zing to any dish. When you bite into a leaf, you’ll immediately notice its sharp and tangy flavor.


    Nutritional Benefits

    Arugula is a great source of vitamins A, C, and K. It also provides minerals like calcium and iron.
