Ruby red Swiss Chard


This is a sweet Swiss chard with beautiful candy-apple-red stalks and dark green, crinkly leaves with touches of red. Both the leaves and the stalks are very ornamental and ‘Ruby Red’ is great in a vegetable or cottage garden, or in an ornamental bed or border. It is especially attractive when grown with plants whose colors call attention to the red coloring. Although related to beets, the root is inedible, but the leafy greens are valued for their mild flavor and high nutritional value.

Full sun or partial shade in rich, light but moist soil. Water thoroughly during dry spells to avoid bolting.

Sow seeds where they are to grow in early spring or late summer.
