Review:

I grow Flamingo Chard year round in my unheated greenhouse. It has combined with Five Color Silverbeet into a sort of land race but you can still pick out the plants that are true to type for Flamingo, as well as occasional Fordhooks, although most are thin stemmed pinkish plants and some thicker all green types. The lovely coloration of the midribs and the thick texture of the slightly more apple green and less savoyed leaves always jumps out, and I'm sure if I rogued out everything else I could clean up the strain again, but the heavy seed production gives me a thick carpet of very pretty microgreens in early spring (greenhouse) followed by a nice bed of salad greens. Progressive thinning leaves me with an abundant source of almost perennial greens, as they will come back from the root under these conditions. Only pest is spider mite, if too hot and dry.

What are the pros? easy

What are the cons? colour

Review:

Like all silverbeets this is easy to grow. The stems of the variety are not that fat, what I liked. But in the future I will stick to the green ones because it does not look good cooked. Looks strange in lasagna for example.

Review:

I planted a row of Flamingo Pink Chard in May - it's now mid-February - the row has continued producing all this time, constantly sending up new tender leaves. There has been frosty weather here for three months now and the plants are unaffectted. The heat of summer never bothered the plants either. I never expected this! Oh, and it's beautiful and delicious, too. I highly recommend these seeds.
