Description:

Pretty enough for the flower garden, this wonderful and richly flavoured heirloom variety has wide stalks and veins that are bright scarlet red and deeply crumpled leaves that are rich dark green. Cook the stalks as you would asparagus and the leaves as you would spinach, or enjoy both raw in salads. Rhubarb Chard Swiss chard seeds sown too early in spring cause the plants to bolt quickly. This reliable old variety first arrived on the market in 1857, and has been winning fans and feeding families ever since. Swiss chard is a rich source of vitamins A, K, and C, and is an excellent source of minerals, dietary fibre, and protein. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

How To Grow

The succulent leaves of Swiss chard can be used much like spinach. You can even use the big ones to wrap “cabbage” rolls. The colourful stems can be cooked like asparagus. Enjoy the small leaves in salad. They grow easily and well in our climate and stand in the garden for many months, giving a long harvest from one planting.  Follow along with this handy How to Grow Swiss Chard from seeds Guide and grow food.
