What are the pros? Taste. Better than spinach.

What are the cons? not edible raw

Review:

Fordhook is very versatile. Early on, you can remove the outer leaves and the plant will continue to grow. As the season progresses the leaves get larger. This variety stays tender, even if the leaves are large. We grow it every year. It is also cold hardy and heat tolerant as long as you water. Not fussy. Prolific. Delicious. I really miss chard in the winter. The grocery stores sell bunches, but since they cook down to nothing, iit is expensive. And at the supermarket, it rarely looks fresh. I cannot eat chard raw because it causes my throat to close like raw rhubarb.

What are the pros? HUUUUUGE.

What are the cons? a little slow at the start

Review:

I was genuinely shocked at how big these got last year. I know they're called "giant," but I really didn't think they would be SO GIANT. Flavor was great. Easy to keep.

What are the pros? Never-fail, best taste!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I love to try new things and rarely grow the same veggies from one year to the next, but there's Fordhook Giant Chard in my garden without fail. Great mild taste and pleasant texture (the stems are huge and so sweet!). Utterly indestructible and neglect-proof plants. Didn't have time to thin them? No problem. Cold summer? Does fine. Neglected in the heat and looks beyond hope? A bit of water and they're sending up more leaves. I usually harvest the leaves a few at a time, but deals well with cutting off the whole bunch. Doesn't mind living in the shade of my excessive tomato plantings. The bugs that eat everything else seem to leave it alone. The one year I planted other varieties, my whole family complained!

What are the pros? Great producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is the second year I am growing these. Great yield, withstands crazy heat, keeps on giving. Best chard I have grown. I don't mind the lack of color. Some of it will make it through even the harshest winter.
