Description

Chard - Five Color Silverbeet - Beta vulgaris (Cicla group)

Biennial Heirloom. Striking rainbow-colored stalks in red, pink, yellow, orange, white. This Australian heirloom mix is tender and tasty, though somewhat less frost tolerant than other chards. Baby greens are ready in 28 days.

Did You Know? Chard is grown for its leaves but is actually a beet.

Soil & Water: Chard prefers moderate soil with plenty of added organic matter and even, moderate water throughout the season.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 1-2 weeks before the last frost, and keep planting every 2 weeks for succession harvest. Chard tolerates light frosts when young, and moderate freezes once established. It can also adapt to warmer summer temperatures.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest outer stalks early, or cut the whole plant to allow a second plant to grow.

Excellent

I only planted one small packet of this chard last season, and was amazed how much it produced! I had chard enough for my family all spring, summer and fall. It was very heat and cold tolerant, and tasted great!
