Robbie’s Produce Tips: Wild Arugula

Robbie with Arugula_360We carry the wild arugula instead of the regular arugula because it has more of a peppery flavor and tends to last longer than regular arugula. Wild arugula is very delicate so it’s important to buy fresh.

When buying:

  • Choose arugula that is green in color. It’s ok to be a little light green but not yellow. That’s most likely a sign of it being old or grown too hot of weather.
  • It should be firm, almost crisp.
  • Older will tend to wilt.
  • Store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag, ideally with a damp paper towel.
  • Even though the arugula may hold 4- 5 days, it’s ideal that you eat as soon as possible.
