a.k.a. Roquette or Rocket
Add peppery zing to salads with fresh arugula. It will bolt in hot weather, but the flowers and seed pods are edible too. ‘Astro’ has a taste that is on the mild side of the arugula spectrum, making it a good bulky salad addition rather than a mere seasoning. It is early, vigorous, and more heat tolerant than other varieties. Mixed half and half with basil, it makes a great pesto.
