Barese Swiss Chard is a babyleaf variety, bred specifically for the baby greens market. It grows quickly with glossy, smooth dark green leaves with slightly curled edges on thick white stems that hold up well in a baby leaf mix for market growers, or home gardeners.
Baby leaves are ready for harvesting in 26 – 28 days, but it is also very good when allowed to grow out to maturity.
In spite of it’s name, Swiss chard is a member of the beet family, only this offshoot has leaves instead of roots as the main edible part. Thought to have originated in the Mediterranean region, it has been used by chefs and home cooks for fresh salad greens as well as boosting soup and stews.
This variety of chard matures exceptionally early and is a very prolific producer. Like all chards, it is tolerant of cold but is also fairly adaptive to heat, especially if grown in a shaded area with mulch to drop the soil and root temperatures.
