Roquette arugula adds a spicy, non-bitter flavor to your salads, sandwiches, and other recipes!

One of the easiest and most flavorful microgreens you can grow.

Arugula is an herb from the mustard family, and its leaves have a pepper mustard-like flavor. They are high in vitamins A and C and are a good source of iron.

Roquette arugula has purple stems and dark-green leaves.

Arugula seeds are easy to grow and are a staple of microgreen growers. The peppery taste gets less intense as it grows larger. It’s best to harvest when the first true leaves form.

Days to maturity are around 14 days when harvested as the first true leaf forms, instead of harvesting at the cotyledon stage.

Arugula is a mucilaginous seed that will slightly stick to a cover when using the weighted blackout method. You can also plant arugula seeds and use the domed method.

The domed method is preferred because the Arugula will grow taller. However, Arugula tends to stop growing taller when placed under lights.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Roquette Arugula Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 1.7 grams

1010 Tray: 4.5 grams

1020 Tray: 9.2 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 0.5 teaspoons

1010 Tray: 1.3 teaspoons

1020 Tray: 2.6 teaspoons

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Arugula microgreens.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.
