Rainbow Chard is a favorite of children and adults! Packed full of vitamins and nutrients, colorful Rainbow Chard plants are as beautiful as they are nutritious. Grown on our farm for years, these productive and hearty plants show disease resistance and can perennialize in cooler coastal areas.
Stunning multi-colored Rainbow Chard chard stems range in color from white, gold, pink, deep crimson, pink striped, orange, scarlet, purple, and green. Best when harvested young for salads but can be harvested all season long. Plants can reach up to 6’ tall if left to reseed the garden.
Suggested Planting Requirements: Chard should be directly sown in full sun with 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 as you would salad greens 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. Chard is a hardier green and can be frozen too.
