A rainbow of colorful stalks in red, white, yellow, gold, violet and orange. Leaves are green or burgundy with colored veins. Very attractive in a vegetable or glower garden. Use small fresh leaves in salads and steam or stir fry larger leaves. Cook stalks as you would asparagus. Begin harvest when plant is about 8" tall. Pick outer leaves first or harvest entire plant. A spring planting will produce all summer if it is kept picked.
Garden Tip: Drought and heat tolerant. Swiss Chard is decorative and edible and can be grown in a container.
