The chard has done very well. I have a small built up garden area I planted them in and they have produced enough to even have some to freeze for winter.
I will buy again.

one of my favorites

Easy to grow, versatile green. Provides a crop continuously throughout the summer and fall. Had no bug issues, just had to keep the deer away. They like it too! Great as a salad green or cooked in casseroles, soups, etc.

Best I've grown

This is the first year I grew this type of chard from TS and it has performed beyond my expectations here at 7800' above sea level. Leaves are large and picked at about 10" long. Plants are healthy with few bug issues. Flavor is great, slightly sweet like something between baby beet greens and spinach. Love using it in my recipes and salads. Colors really add flair to a salad! Would definitely grow again.

Beta vulgaris, Cicla Group Swiss chard is a vegetable that is in the same family as the common beet, however while the root of the beet is commonly eaten, it's the leaves of the Swiss chard that are consumed. Recent nutritional analysis has shown that Swiss chard is second only to spinach on the world's healthiest vegetable list. Packed with anthocyanins and fiber it's one of the most antioxidant rich foods as demonstrated in the vivid colors of the leaves.
