Product description

Our Firefly kids love the colors and we have caught them nibbling to see if all the colors taste the same

The Seed Savers Exchange - (aka Rainbow Chard) Australian heirloom from Digger’s Garden Club. Technicolor mixture of Swiss chards with shades of red, orange, purple, yellow, and white tastes as good as it looks. Seed crops of all the different colors are grown in isolation to maintain a proper balance of colors. Tender and delicious. 50-60 days.

Characteristics: 

  • Organic
  • Tasty tender leaves
  • Red, orange, purple, yellow, and white ribs
  • Can be grown in containers
  • 50-60 days
  • 100 seeds per packet 

Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors in early spring when the soil temperature is at least 50°F. Can also be started indoors 5-6 weeks before transplanting out. Grows best in full sun but tolerates partial shade. Swiss chard withstands light frost.
