Arugula microgreens are the young, tender shoots of the arugula plant, harvested right after the first true leaves develop. Microgreens offer a more intense flavor than mature leaves, providing a dense nutrient profile. They’ve become a favorite with professional chefs and home cooks. Add a bold taste to dishes of every kind by growing arugula microgreens. It’s a simple way to incorporate organic greens into your diet at any time of the year, regardless of your gardening space or challenging climate conditions.


Spread arugula microgreens seeds evenly on a shallow tray, filled with moist seed-starting mix (or coconut coir). Firmly press the seeds into the soil. Mist the surface with water and cover to block out light. Keep well-watered by misting or bottom watering and keep the covered tray in a dark place for four to six days. After a few inches of growth or when the microgreens lift the cover, place the tray in an area with bright, indirect light.


Arugula microgreens grow quickly and can be ready to harvest in about a week or two. Microgreens require regular misting to maintain moisture in the growing medium. Harvest arugula microgreens when they are 2 to 3 inches tall. Cut them just above the soil line. Enjoy them immediately after harvesting, for the best taste and highest nutrient content.

Growing arugula microgreens at home is a simple task. It provides a steady supply of fresh greens. Enjoy arugula microgreens benefits by growing your own at home. They’ll be at the peak of freshness, and you’ll be able to save a lot of money and avoid the expense of buying these tasty greens in the grocery store.


How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
