Description

Fordhook chard is a garden giant that will surprise kids and adults alike with how large it will grow! Its flavor is just as lovable as its size. A kitchen essential!

Packed full of vitamins and nutrients, this large chard variety with white stems and dark green leaves is as beautiful as it is good for you! Best when harvested young for salads but can be harvested all season long. Plants can reach up to 6’ tall if left to reseed in the garden.

Suggested Planting Requirements: Chard should be directly sown in full sun in mild temperatures or in partial shade during the summer in milder climates. Consistent watering will give continuous yield and discourage bolting. Direct sow or transplant.

Growing Recommendations: Chard is best grown in full sun, in the late spring and early fall. Chard can be grown in poor soil conditions.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest like any salad or beet greens. Leaves are best when picked in the early morning and stored directly in the refrigerator before the heat of the day. Chard may be kept moist in a salad spinner for several days.
