Rainbow Swiss Chard
All chard varieties are descendants of the sea beet, a wild seashore plant found growing along the coasts of Europe and North Africa. Rainbow Swiss chard cultivation was first mentioned in 1636, but commercial availability wasn't available until the 19th century. The Vilmorin Seed Catalog listed Rainbow Swiss Chard to the public for the first time in 1888.
Rainbow Swiss Chard is a tasty, cut-and-come-again variety suitable for harvesting as baby leaves or when fully matured. Eat raw or sauteed like spinach.
Known for its strong disease tolerance and resistance to bolting, this heirloom has been around since 1857. Swiss Chard is nutrient-rich, containing vitamins A, K, and C, as well as minerals, fiber, and protein.
Receiver of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, Peppermint Swiss Chard.
Plant Swiss Chard with tomatoes, beans, and peas. Beans also contribute to soil fertility as an added bonus for chard. Interplant with calendula, borage, marigolds, basil, onions, sage, thyme, and cilantro for natural pest deterrents. Looks lovely planted among flowering herbs and wildflowers, too.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
