goosefoot family Beta vulgaris ssp. vulgaris var. vulgaris

Green leafy Swiss chard

Chard is a traditional leafy vegetable in alpine regions. Due to its deep green leaves, it is very hearty and healthy. It also produces a high yield making it not only tasty, but very economical.

Sow in late April to mid-July in rows 20–30 cm apart. Chard loves heavy group soils. Mature compost in abundance and abundant watering help the flavours develop. Harvest, depending on the seeding date, from June to October. Late seeding actually produces an additional harvest in the following spring.
