Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost in a warm, sunny location or partial shade in hot areas. In temperate areas, sow in late summer/early fall as well. Keep soil moist. Soak seeds and rinse water 3-4 times before planting. Like beets, chard “seeds” produce more than one plant, so will require thinning. When the plant has a strong root structure, harvest a couple of leaves from each plant. Mature plants can be cut back to 1-2" above soil for re-growth for a cut-and-come again harvest.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Good in recipes that use pak choi or spinach. Use small leaves in salad.
