300 seed per pack sows a 20 ft row. 89% germination.


Greens Culture: Prefers cool temperatures; direct seed as early as possible in spring. Bolts readily in heat; much better as a fall crop or succession planted. Use row covers to discourage flea beetles. I always let my spring crop grow to seed and am rewarded with a self-sown September and October patch that is delicious and has no flea beetle damage! A prime ingredient in tangy mesclun mixes. Frequent watering will reduce its pungency. Suitable for microgreens.

Days to maturity are from direct seeding.

Culture: When to harvest greens? Research from trials conducted in England and Kenya showed looseleaf lettuce, red chard and arugula harvested in the evening had a longer shelf life than when picked in the morning.
