This brightly colored Swiss Chard can be used as an ornamental or a vegetable. Leaves are medium green with a bright orange stem. Has a milder flavor than other chards and is suitable for fresh salad greens or cooked like spinach.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors in a sunny location as soon as the ground can be worked. Plant in rows 18 inches apart spacing seed 1 inch apart in the row. Cover seed with ½ inch of soil, well pressed down.

THINNING…When plants are 3 to 4 inches tall, thin to 10-12 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 10 to 15 days depending on soil and temperature conditions.

REMARKS…Chard replaces spinach during the hot summer months. Make cuttings of mature leaves about 1 inch above ground and new leaves will form allowing continuous harvest all season until frost.
