Description

Use brilliant-coloured baby leaves raw in salad and larger leaves cooked like spinach. Excellent for chard gratin and risotto balls. A must for the ornamental veg garden. You'll only need one or two sowings for growing all year, as this variety is slow to bolt.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
