Description

Rainbow Swiss Chard - Technicolor Wonder

Beautiful technicolor mixture of shades of red, orange, purple, yellow and white leaves. Very colorful, tender and tasty. Makes a great edible ornamental.  An Australian heirloom. Tolerates light frost, great producer all season long.

History

Both leaf beets and root beets were developed possibly by the Romans from the wild sea-beet, which occurs in coastal regions of Europe and western Asia. Swiss Chard is the same species as the garden beet root and sugar beet but is grown only for its leaves.

Uses

Used by chefs and home cooks for fresh salad greens as well as boosting soup and stews. The thick but tender stalks are edible as well.

Growing Tip

Swiss Chard does not bolt in hot weather the way spinach does. It also is great in cold weather surviving many frosts.

    Truly, a rainbow

    This chard was a good producer all summer and remained relatively bug-free. I will grow it again.

    Reliable, good producer

    I had very high germination rate and very healthy plants from this chard. They've far outlived all my other greens and happily grown through sporadic watering and a few nearly 110 degree days.
