Organic Rainbow Swiss-Chard Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Rainbow Swiss-Chard seeds take 30 days for baby greens and 60 days for full size maturity. A rainbow of colouful stems topped with dark leafy greens. Plant this chard in the flower garden or ornamental kitchen garden and enjoy the mix of orange, yellow, white, red and pink. Colours are most pronounced when full size. Cook leaves like spinach and stalks like asparagus or celery. An easy-to-grow nutritional storehouse.
Start indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Can also be direct seeded in mid-spring thru early summer. Chard does best in cool conditions but will tolerate some heat. Sow 1.5 cm deep and aim for a plant every 10 to 15 cm for bunching. Closer spacing is better for baby greens. Cut leaves and allow plants to regrow for continuous harvest.
