Diplotaxis tenuifolia.

Wild arugula seeds grow a far more tolerant and perennial relative to the common arugula or "garden rocket".

Although still bright and peppery, wild arugula seeds deliver a far more complex and subtle profile compared to traditional culinary arugula, while still ready for harvest in about 6 weeks.

Wild arugula is a persistent and weedy perennial that has found its way into the kitchen as a mild and savory component to many leafy greens and salad mixes.
