Bright crimson stalks, midribs and veins contrast nicely with the dark green slightly savoyed leaves of this variety. Mature plants grow to about 2' tall with narrow stalks. Popular for baby leaf and microgreens.
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. Fertilize as needed. 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.
