Days to Maturity: 60 days

GB Cultural info: ALL/Matures 7-8/Harvest 44/Yield 200-810/Spacing 8"/ DAYS TO MAT: 50-60 days SEEDS PER PACKET: 80 SOURCE CODE: C APPROX GERM DAYS: 10-14 PLANTING DEPTH: 1/2" WHEN TO PLANT: Early Spring, Summer, Fall in mild-winter areas PACKET LABEL INSTRUCTIONS: Perennial in zones 7 and above. May be started in flats or pots, but chard is taprooted, so transplant promptly or direct-sow. Easy to grow and drought-tolerant vegetable will produce best when well-prepared soil and good drainage allow its roots to go deep. Prefers a sunny place and is slow to bolt. Can be planted from Spring onwards. Two months after planting or when plants are 12-18" tall, begin gently pulling off the outer leaves and new leaves will form or cut plant 2" from soil and new will re-grow. Adequate moisture and fertility will make for more tender leaves.
Description: 1869) Perennial in zones 7 and above, or colder if drainage is excellent. Rare, fine old European strain of Swiss Chard. Smaller smooth dark-green leaves, small mid-ribs. Frost and bolt resistant, needs water in a dry spell. We saw whole fields under cultivation in England.
