What are the pros? Excellent performer

Review:

Planted this chard in early spring and despite a blazingly hot and dry summer here in North Carolina, this chard has continued to produce amazingly well. This may be the only variety of chard that I plant from here on out. The taste is amazing and any vegetable that is truly cut and come again is worth my garden space.

What are the pros? Gorgeous plant, rich flavor

Review:

I planted these in a raised bed late last summer, and none of the seeds came up. Later in the year, in our warm late winter, I tended the bed, adding compost and watering in preparation for spring crops. A few weeks later is when the chard finally came up, after I had given up on it! I had completely forgotten what I had planted and figured it was a spinach volunteer. I was so pleased when I realised what was actually growing, as the plants are so beautiful, and so delicious. Thin, pale green stems grow up to deep grass-green leaves which are tender and very flavorful. The leaves don't get fluffy or squeaky like other chards do when they mature, but stay supple and smooth. I'm so happy the seeds eventually decided to grow for me, and will definitely plant this again.

What are the cons? none

Review:

Grows a long time, and grows like grass (cut it back and it grows again). Used in smoothies everyday, mild tasting and nice to look at in the garden.

What are the pros? Thin stems

What are the cons? Bolted sooner than expected

Review:

I planted this variety and giant fordhook in the fall and it overwintered well. Both were very good and easy to grow. I liked the thinner stems of this variety but it bolted quickly. I'll plant it again.

What are the pros? doesn't quit

What are the cons? no dislikes

Review:

This chard just keeps going and going and going. The leaves are smooth and tender. The leaves remain tender even with heat and large leaves are still tender. I planted this chard in a location that I didn't expect it to do as well as it did but with a top dressing of compost every month or so, it has continued to produce for nearly a year here in San Diego. I even tried to thin it out a bit and it just kept going and going and going. Great raw with other greens and/or lettuces, great in smoothies, and great cooked alone or with a few bitter greens. A great green to keep in the garden!
