Barese Swiss Chard

         
 
4 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This compact, meaty, dwarf Swiss chard originates from Italy and matures super fast with large yields! Produces incredibly tender baby greens or when grown out, a very unique looking and tasty spinach-like chard with dark green, slightly curled uniform leaves. This variety is not susceptible to flea beetle damage or black rot. Typically harvested at 10” and good steamed or raw in salads.

What are the pros? great flavor; pest resistant

What are the cons? none

Review:

Spring of 2018 in the Chicago area was marked by cycles of high temperatures followed by cold weather. Under these conditions 'Barese" resisted bolting unlike lettuce "Marvel of Four Seasons" planted on the same day. No problems with pests. The unexpectedly high temperatures produced bitter flavors in the young leaves and so these plants were not used for salads. However, mature leaves of 'Barese' were delicious sauteed with onions and garlic. I will plant this easy to grow, pest resistant and tasty cultivar next year.

What are the pros? Flavor, quick, heat okay

What are the cons? None

Review:

Because we've been getting heat between 97 and 110ish this summer (with a cloudless sky most days of the year) and because some of my plants were distressed above 95, I have been using burlap as shade cloth. This chard grows quickly, and the leaves are very dark green. Raw, I don't like it quite as much as the perpetual spinach chard or the Crosby's Egyptian beet greens, but cooked it tastes exactly like salted quality/fresh cooked spinach. Delicious!!! I suspect that the perpetual spinach chard will taste similar to the Barese when cooked. If you want spinach flavor in the summer, this will give it!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very tasty

Review:

I chose to grow this on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised. The seeds germinated faster than the rhubarb Swiss chard. The leaves are perfect in a mixed green salad. It is a perfect introduction to Swiss chard growing.

Review:

I planted Barese from a different supplier last year and can only rave about it. This is a different kind of chard, smaller, more tender and in my opinion tastier. It germinates and grows quick, can be harvested many times and will regrow well when cut just above the heart. Had it all winter in the unheated greenhouse and started to bolt 2 days ago. The chicken like it now.
