Swiss chard has large, succulent dark green leaves and an earthy spinach-like flavor. Rainbow chard grows with a variety of vibrantly colored stems. Approx. 100 seeds/packet.
An all-star aquaponic performer, Rainbow Swiss chard thrives in soilless growing and makes a great combination ornamental and edible plant. Brightly-colored stalks and lustrous leaves are striking in healthy plants, and its flavor remains mild all the way from sprouts to full size. A gentle bitterness and earthy spinach-like flavor pair well with most savory foods. Large seeds are easy to plant and fun for kids.
