Swiss Chard

Every garden should have at least one of the colorful varieties of swiss chard. It's as beautiful as it is delicious. And, so versatile in the kitchen. Young leaves will perk up a salad, while mature leaves are excellent with a quick sauteed or as a last addition to soups. 'Bright Lights' has truly bright multi-colored stems. It's an AAS (All American Selections) Winner , so it's an easy and reliable variety. 'Bright LIghts' is a wonderful show in the garden and on the plate. Great in containers, too. Another attractive variety is 'Ruby Red Rhubarb' and we enjoy the mild flavor and hardiness of the white-stemmed 'Argenta'.
