Rainbow Chard Seedlings

Chard (F1) 55 Days

A multi-colored Swiss chard with stems of red, pink, orange, yellow and white. Transplant 4-12” apart, depending on whether you want to harvest baby leaves or full-sized bunches. A very ornamental vegetable, and makes delicious cooked greens. Multiple seedlings in each 2.5″ biodegradable pot.

There are multiple seedlings in each pot of chard. You can plant them all together for baby greens, or split the wetted pot into chunks and plant each chunk 6″ apart to give each plant room to grow larger leaves.

The VERY BEST chard recipe I have ever made is “Green Shakshuka with Avocado and Lime.” (You can find it easily with an internet search.) It’s worth growing chard just to make this recipe.

Vigorous plug seedlings are approximately 1” with a healthy root system; I’ll pop them out of the tray for you and wrap them in newspaper. Plant them or pot them up when you get home. I plant all my veggie transplants as plugs; they are a healthy, ecological and economical alternative to potted transplants.
