Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard Vegetable Seeds

Featuring heirloom, open-pollinated, non-GMO, untreated seeds.

Chard or Swiss chard (Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris, Cicla Group and Flavescens Group) (/tʃɑːrd/) is a green leafy vegetable. In the cultivars of the Flavescens Group, the leaf stalks are large and often prepared separately from the leaf blade;[1] the Cicla Group is the leafy spinach beet. The leaf blade can be green or reddish in color; the leaf stalks are usually white, or a colorful yellow or red.[2]

Chard, like other green leafy vegetables, has highly nutritious leaves, making it a popular component of healthy diets.[3] Chard has been used in cooking for centuries, but because it is the same species as beetroot, and similar to vegetables such as cardoon, the common names that cooks and cultures have used for chard may be confusing;[4] it has many common names, such as silver beet, perpetual spinach, beet spinach, seakale beet, or leaf beet.[5][6]

Bright Orange Eldorado Swiss Chard


In Stock
$2.49

Orange stocks and green leaves great for salads or steamed side plate.

Golden Swiss chard can be used similarly to other leafy greens and chard varieties and may be eaten raw when young, but larger leaves are best cooked. They can be sautéed, blanched, stewed, braised, baked, and even grilled. Use raw leaves to add an earthy saltiness and a bright color to salad mixes. Slow cook entire stalks similarly to collards, though some of their golden color may lessen and become dull, and compliment with smoked meats and white beans. Wilt the shredded leaves into pastas or atop pizzas and flatbreads. The golden stalks are as equally edible as the leaves, and may be used in dishes for added texture. Complimentary flavors include citrus, tomatoes, garlic, shallots, chickpeas, white beans, potatoes, aged and melting cheeses, cream, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, ham, chili flakes, fennel and herbs such as basil, tarragon and chervil

Popular Perpetual Spinach, Swiss Chard, Beet Family, Indian Variety


In Stock
$2.49

Perpetual spinach is actually a chard (beet family) but is very similar to true spinach in flavour. We prefer it as it is much easier to grow and far more vigorous than true spinach. It also has the advantage of constantly producing a new crop when picked and so is ideally suited to gardening in a small space.

Health benefits of Swiss chard. Swiss chard is a highly nutritious vegetable. Just one cup provides over three times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin K. It is also commonly known as silverbeet, spinach beet, perpetual spinach, crab beet, and mangold.

Direct sow after the last spring frost. Plant seeds 1/2" deep in compost-enriched soil in full sun. Space the plants 4-5" apart; for continual harvesting of the outer stalks, space the plants 8-10" apart for larger growth.

Seeds are great for Planting in Garden or for storing in a seed safe for emergency.

For a continuous summer crop, plant more Swiss chard every two weeks. Germination should occur in about a week. Swiss chard can survive light frosts, and can be planted as a fall crop.
