What are the pros? Resilient, easy to grow
What are the cons? Nothing to dislike.
I can't get my family to eat Swiss chard, but I took a chance on this plant after one son announced he has started liking salads with baby spinach. After the hot, humid summer we've had, the plants still look strong, and haven't yet bolted. They don't seem to be the favorites of those infernal white butterfly caterpillars, either. Insect damage was much less on these than on the other greens I grew nearby. I will definitely plant this again next year. I have been using the small leaves in salads this summer, and will be using the larger leaves in sautes or soups this fall.
