Barese Swiss Chard

Barese Swiss Chard (Green) 500 Open Pollinated Seeds


Dwarf variety for whole-plant harvest or baby leaf. Barese can be grown for exceptionally tender baby greens, or it can be grown to maturity for an early crop of a unique type of Swiss chard. Can be harvested and sold as whole plants, much like pac choi. However, unlike pac choi and other similar brassica greens, Barese is not susceptible to flea beetle damage or black rot, making it an excellent alternative for whole-plant greens marketing and crop rotation.

Harvest in about 25 days for a baby size and 45 days to fully mature.

Bright Lights Swiss Chard

Bright Lights Swiss Chard 200 Open Pollinated Seeds


Bright Lights Swiss Chard has 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. AAS winner.

Harvest in about 28 days for a baby size and 55 days for bunching.

Peppermint Swiss Chard

Peppermint Swiss Chard 200 Open Pollinated Seeds


Eye-catching pink and white striped stems. Vivid pink-on-white striping on the petiole. Glossy, dark-green leaves make for a striking contrast with the brilliant white veins. Deep leaf savoy for higher leaf volume. Long, strong petioles and upright habit make for quick and easy harvesting and bunching. Selected for strong disease tolerance and high bolt resistance. Peppermint is more than a novelty item; its strong agronomic qualities make it an outstanding performer in the field, and its beautiful color grabs attention at market. The ace of our field trials year after year. 

Harvest in about 33 days for a baby size and/or 60 days for bunching.
