Rainbow Blend Chard (Organic 55 Days)

A brilliant blend of colors decorative enough to grow in a flower garden. Yellow, red, orange, white, and pink stems have dark green savoy leaves. Use all season; the baby greens can be added to salad mixes while the large leaves can be filled with veggies and grains and used as a carb-free wrap. When cooked the colors hold and brighten your dishes.

swiss chard etc

My experience was fine and I hope to repeat it next spring. We've had an odd year for seeds. The chard is planted in a stock tank that I have on a wagon on the deck. Either we've had too much rain or too much heat so the plants started out stunted but now they're coming along. I didn't seem to have a problem with germination. I just have to move my garden around! Thank you, Barbara

Love these greens!

My original intention for buying these was for my spring garden but i also took some of the seed and planted them in my small hydroponics system indoors. They absolutely thrived there and gave me a nice bunch of yummy greens for me to enjoy while waiting for spring!
