What are the pros? Tasty, resilient, quick grower
What are the cons? None
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.
