Unbelievably vivid red stems and veins

shine in the sun with rich color-nothing like the bronzes and maroons that pass for red with most vegetables.

Easy to grow and care for, drought-resistant and cold hardy. 

BOTANICAL NAME: Beta vulgaris

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

May be started in flats or pots, but chard is taprooted, so transplant promptly or direct-sow. Will produce best when well-prepared soil and good drainage allow its roots to go deep. Prepare bed well and add compost. In 2 months, or when plants are 12-18" tall, begin gently pulling off the outer leaves and new leaves will form, or cut plant 2" from soil and new will regrow. Can live a long time, appreciates a top-dressing of compost or manure midseason.
