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!

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.

What are the pros? Just about everything

Review:

I planted this early last spring and harvested all the way through the summer and into the fall. It seemed totally unfazed by the summer heat here outside Washington, D.C.. But the real surprise came when it continued to slowly grow through the winter with temperatures down as low as 10 degrees and it was not under any cover! I lost a few plants but most of them survived and now that it is spring they are producing leaves again from the base of the plants and I have already harvested twice, the last time today on April 17th.

Review:

This variety of chard is one of the most productive vegetables anyone could ever grow. It is tough taking the high heat and humidity of summer and is productive through most of the winter unless it gets down in the low teens or single digits then it simply rests till warmer temps and takes off growing again. As a cut and come again crop I am not aware of anything else in the garden that produces almost a full year without having to replant. It also grows very well in containers and is very attractive with its dark green leaves and white stalks. I have grown other varieties of chard but this one is the most productive and the most weather tolerant I have found. The greens are also very good flavored. This variety will always be in my garden.
