Chard - Red Ruby - Beta vulgaris (Cicla group)

Biennial Heirloom. Red Ruby is a popular red-stemmed chard. The dark green leaves have crimson stalks and veins. Also called Rhubarb Chard, it makes a nice ornamental addition to any garden and has been in use since 1857. Eat fresh or use like spinach.

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. Plant after spring frosts to avoid bolting. 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.
