Description

This has great flavour and looks wonderful with its chunky white-stems. A hugely long-producing and worthwhile plant.

Chard is one of my desert island veg because you can pick it for months on end and there are so many fantastic ways to cook it . Make sure to strip the white from the green, as they have different cooking times.

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

Care Tips

This will survive winter frosts to keep producing through until spring, especially if protected with cloches or fleece.
