The Q&A Archives: How To Harvest Arugula

Question: how do I harvest arugula, one leaf at a time or just trim flowering branch?


Answer: Arugula grows in a loose, open bunch and can be harvested one leaf at a time or the entire head at once. Arugula is slow to bolt (form a flower head), but should be harvested before a flowering stem appears. Harvest your plants before they all begin to bolt or you'll sacrifice tenderness and flavor.
