What are the pros? Delicious, quick growing
What are the cons? Can't have it year round
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.
