Start the Arugula Growing Season with High-Performance Varieties from Tozer Seeds America

VoyagerThe upcoming fall season marks the start of another growing cycle for arugula, also known as wild rocket, and Tozer Seeds America offers an attractive selection of arugula with great benefits to both growers and retailers, company officials say. Tozer’s arugula varieties offer growers a more vigorous, slower bolting plant making them easier to grow, officials add; these varieties also provide retailers with improved flavor and more interesting leaves. Tozer’s arugula breeding program began in the late 1990s and triumphed in 2004 with the introduction of Voyager. As the world’s first named variety of arugula, Voyager combined excellent uniformity, yield and flavor with an upright habit, making it easier to harvest, officials say. “Tozer is at the forefront of developing and breeding new arugula varieties,” says Kraig Kuykendall, sales manager of Tozer Seeds America. “We aim to develop a selection of new varieties with better flavor for retailers as well as an easier plant to grow for the growers.”
