What are the pros? Takes heat, continual harvest
What are the cons? none
We really like spinach. Our summers are long, hot and usually dry. We grow swiss chard to saute and add to stir fry and other cooked dishes, but love this type for raw use. A small stand of it can produce for months during both hot and cool weather. Added to salads or sandwiches, it takes very much like spinach.
I grow some spinach in the covered winter gardens, but this is the summer substitute that works for us. During the summer, I don't have time to deal with fussy plants and this one isn't the least bit fussy.

What are the pros? Grows continuously into 2nd yr
What are the cons? Quail love it too
This is the best garden crop ever, if you like spinach. It doesn't bolt like the small-leaf spinach. It comes back in spring, while your new seeds are coming up. You can cut and cut it and it just keeps growing. Perfect for smoothies, salads, etc. You can pick leaves when small or large. You can cut out the stems and chop them for a 'different' vegetable. Easy, easy, easy. Makes my garden look beautifully green all year!
What are the pros? did well in early summer
What are the cons? didn't like our excessive heat
we're semi desert with summer days over 100 degrees often times. it did well initially although it had a very low germination rate. I will try in the fall - so far it is hanging in there although hit by powder mildew and aphids so it is not looking all that healthy.
What are the pros? Best flavor chard
What are the cons? None
Love this chard and can't say enough about it. I planted it in a large Earthbox and it was ready to cut as indicated. Less bitter flavor than other chards; not exactly like spinach but close. Stem are small and very tasty fresh.

What are the pros? easy, prolific spring-fall
This "spinach" is fantastic! More tender and spinach-like early in the season it gives way to a more chard-like texture as the season progresses. Started by seed in place in the garden in early spring it produced prolifically all spring,summer, fall and now even into a cold Minnesota winter (with cover). I am in love with this plant! I hope I never spend a growing season without it again!
