Arugula Art Pack Seeds
Bright and potent green, delectable in the cooler months.
Foods have meanings that change over time. Mesclun mix salads containing arugula were staples of the Romans, but arugula was later banned by the Catholic Church due to its reputation as an aphrodisiac. Today, despite its ease of growth, arugula is sometimes used to symbolize snooty foodie culture. We are not bitter, but we don't think there are any vegetables too elite to grow in your humble home gardens, especially when they're as fast-growing and delicious as arugula.
Adult leaves can be harvested within four weeks of sowing. Its characteristic zing is irreplaceable and beloved by many. From the seedling stage until early maturity, it can be harvested for fresh eating in salads and garnishing sandwiches; when it gets older, it can be braised in olive oil for a terrific cooked green that is great with pasta dishes.

Meet the Makers
Hudson Valley Seed Co is the best source for heirloom and open-pollinated garden seeds and beautiful garden-themed contemporary art. They are a values-driven seed company that practices and celebrates responsible seed production and stewardship. They have our own certified organic farm in upstate New York where they produce much of what they sell.
The folks at Hudson Valley Seed Company are both farmers and storytellers who are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. Every seed in their catalog is open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO. They believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us, and they work with a range of artists as diverse as their seeds to pass those stories down to present and future gardeners.
