Chard: Bright Lights SB

Lightly savoyed, green or bronze leaves with stems of many colors including gold, pink, orange, purple, red, and white with bright and pastel variations. The flavor is milder than ordinary chard, with each color a bit different. Direct seed or grow from transplant which allows separating out the individual colors. Suitable for production year round, but somewhat less frost hardy than normal for chard. The late New Zealand amateur breeder John Eaton developed Bright Lights, and Johnny's selects and maintains the different color stocks and produces the seeds. AAS winner.

Chard: Chard

Chard is the same species as Beet, but is grown for its foliage rather than the root. It is one of the easiest vegetables to grow, very productive, little bothered by pests or disease and resistant to both heat and cold. It is an almost foolproof cool weather potherb for the small garden. Chard is cultivated in much the same way as Beet, though it is somewhat easier to grow as it only has to produce edible foliage. Chard can also be grown as a decorative plant for the whole family to enjoy in the garden and one the kids can enjoy harvesting.
