Bright Lights Swiss Chard (50 days)

5

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.

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.

Beautiful... and Tasty!

This was the last vegetable standing in our garden last year. It not only retains it flavor into the Fall, its flavor is enhanced by a light frost.

Bright Lights Chard

First and last veggie harvested from the garden. So colorful and fun. If picked before the leaves get too big they are especially tender and sweet (if chard can be called sweet) when steamed.
