Also known as Rainbow Chard, this is an 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. 

 

Growing Instructions

Sow seeds outdoors in early spring when soil temperature is at least 10 degrees Celsius (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.  Plant seeds 4” apart in-row, at 1/2” in depth. Plant spacing between rows,  20-24". Thin to 12" apart.
