Swiss Chard-Northern Lights Mix
The Northern Lights Mix, a type of Swiss Chard or Beta vulgaris L. var. cicla is a great spinach substitute that has some of the most intense colors of chard you'll be able to find! The 21 to 26" plants produce eye-appealing stalk colors of deep gold, snow white, deep red and magenta, all with shiny, medium green colored leaves. Mature leaves can either be lightly savoyed to heavily savoyed. The stalks are broad, tender, and fleshy, even at full maturity.
Planting Guidance: Sow seed direct in prepared soil from March to August, at a depth of 1cm in drills 30cm apart, and thin seedlings to 7cm. Young leaves may be harvested to use in salads after eight weeks. Leave plants to mature for larger leaves.
