(Beta vulgaris var cicla) 50 days. Belongs to the same species as chard and beets, but it has distinctive differences. The taste is more like a true spinach than ordinary chard, and the leaves look like spinach too—flatter and more pointed than chard, with slimmer stems. Very longstanding in the garden, yielding from late spring through autumn if planted early. Seldom bolts during its first year.

What are the pros? Heat tleratant

Review:

I planted this Swiss chard underneath my okra in the shade of the okra leaves. The shade had no bearing on this very bountiful tasty Swiss chard. I planted in April and had “spinach” spring, summer and fall!

What are the pros? Spinach like but doesn't bolt

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I like salads but hate wasting garden space on greens that bolt like regular spinach and lettuces. This variety has a nearly identical flavor and texture to spinach, but doesn't bolt and in fact does very well in hot weather. It is great either cooked or raw, freezes well, and can be used as swiss chard or spinach. It is easy to grow and you get quick harvests. I cut the whole plant about 3 inches from the ground and let it grow back. No need for succession plantings, after a couple weeks (or less) it will be ready to harvest again. This is one of my must haves for my homestead.

What are the pros? Tasty, easy, grows all season

What are the cons? None

Review:

Some veggies like it hot, some like it cold, and some, fortunately, thrive in both. I planted this chard in late summer and am still picking it despite some cold (<20 deg.) nights. It's more tender and mild than typical chard (more like spinach), and the ribs are slender and easy to remove for more spinach-like texture. Leaves are a rich, dark green that just HAS to be good for you. ANYONE should be able to grow this in just about any reasonable climate.

Review:

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.

Review:

I have a 36-inch window box planted in this stuff, and in combination with a few potted kale and arugula plants, I'm eating salads off my porch three times a week without buying any greens from the supermarket. These are productive, fast-rebounding plants. This is much better for fresh eating than regular Swiss chard: the midribs are smaller and tenderer, and the leaves themselves are closer to the slightly succulent texture of spinach. In fact, I prefer this to "real" spinach because I'm very keen on the richly minerally chard flavor, which somehow makes me feel like I can sense myself growing healthier in a single meal. The weather hasn't gotten truly hot here yet, but plenty of other things are trying to bolt and this is just trucking right along, so I couldn't be happier.
