Bright Lights Swiss Chard (50 days)

A 1998 All-America Award Winner. Bright Lights is almost neon in appearance and was the talk of our trial gardens. The leaves are green, moderately savoyed with veins of vibrant color, red, orange, or yellow running through them. The contrast is outstanding. Use young raw leaves in a salad (30 days) or briefly cook mature leaves (50 days) to maintain their color. If started indoors 5 to 6 weeks before setting out they can be planted by color for effect in an ornamental edible garden. Developed by Johnny's Selected Seeds. 75 seeds

Outdoors- Early spring, a few weeks before last frost. Plant 1/2’ deep, 3-4” apart, thin 10-15” apart for large plants, less for smaller harvests.

Harvest- Remove outer leaves starting at 6”. Use the leaves and center ribs cooked or raw.

Tips- Plant every 14 days for continuous full plant harvest, use thinning’s or seed a heavy row for baby greens.

Great Results!

As a fairly new gardener that has never grown Swiss chard before, I can say how easy this was. My first seedlings got eaten by a rabbit, but I fixed the fence and was successful. I don't remember the germination rate, but it was very good. I raised around 8 plants, each doing well in limited space. These certainly live up to the name, beautiful colours and great taste stir-fried. Will buy again

Bright lights swiss chard

Since it is still spring, and a late spring here, all I can say is that they have come up very nicely. I keep reemay over newly seeded areas, until they are established, and to keep the woodchuck from eating them so that helps. Otherwise, I won’t know much for several weeks. I have grown these repeatedly in the past and have been happy with them.

Swiss Chard

I planted the seeds in the house. They germinated and became tiny baby plants. They are in the garden now growing fast. I am in hopes of having some to eat in a few weeks. Looking good.

not many seeds in the packet

That's why pinetree seeds are very reasonably priced. There's very few seeds in a packet. I must remember never to buy from Pinetree again.
