Swiss chard is a very versatile green leafy vegetable closely related to beets that has a wide range of culinary uses, often serving as a substitute for spinach.  The seed collection offered here is a mixture of different colors.  Direct sow 1/2" deep after heavy frosts or sow indoors 5-6 weeks before transplanting.  Soaking seeds overnight helps in germination. Thin or transplant 4-6" apart in rows 12-18" apart.  Harvest by cutting or snapping off leaves as desired usually beginning in 50-60 days.

Beta vulgaris, Swiss Chard
