Review:

This is a fantastic plant to grow. It is easy to plant and before you know it, it is already coming up and ready to eat. I feel like I can pick this every day and the next day I can't even tell I took any. It grows so fast and tastes so good! The stalks are soooo sweet! Fall of 2015 I planted these on 8/17 and was harvesting them 30 days later. I was continually eating this chard until the first week of November (hard frost on 10/18). In 2016 I planted these on 6/14 and again was eating them about 4-6 weeks later. They took a bit longer to come up but we've also had an average temperature of high 80's for the past two months. Once they got going (mulched in heavy wood chips) they have been producing like crazy. Still harvesting as much as I can this morning (8/9/2016) This chard will always be in my garden.

What are the cons? Can't have it year round

Review:

Planted May 1st, was eating it by June 1st. I planted 3 rows, each 4 feet long and I've had enough Chard to eat it 3-4 times a week. It's 8/11 now, and my bed of chard is healthy and thriving, even after the 18 inches of rain this summer, which is a records for NE Indiana. Great raw, not as bitter as kale. Also good stir fryed or saut?ed with some shallots and oil. The color is stunning too. For people who don't like Chard, or have never eaten it, this would be a great variety to start with.

Review:

This Chard is an attractive, low maintenance, and delicious green, great in salads when small, or steamed alone, with other greens, or added to soups. Insects and disease are a non issue with these, but the deer just loved them.

Review:

This stuff has been the most consistent thing in the garden- came up in late April, and now we're at the end of a very hot July and it just keeps on producing, despite the fact that we haven't even watered it. Pretty coloring.
