Arugula is one of those greens that will literally spice up a salad with its peppery, fresh taste. It matures quickly (35 - 45 days) and the flavor deteriorates once the plant flowers, so succession planting every three weeks up until about a month before your average first frost will ensure a steady supply of tender leaves. Harvesting the leaves when they are 2 - 4 inches long will give you the mildest flavor.
