‘Bright Lights’ Swiss Chard

Beta vulgaris

This stunning chard seed mix is as ornamental as it is delicious, with stems in gold, pink and crimson. A few plants will be white and pink striped, orange, scarlet, purple, green and white. All are delicious to eat, though they are at their best harvested young for salads.

Pick from late spring until winter. Grows best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Swiss chard is very cold tolerant and will continue to grow in the garden through frosts until temperatures drop to the mid-20’s.  Swiss chard is very heat tolerant and will produce greens through the summer. Foliage will regrow another crop about 7-10 days after cutting so you can continue harvesting all summer.
