What's at the end of the rainbow? For gardeners, it's a bountiful harvest; for cooks, it's a delicious meal; for artists it's a colorful plate. This multi-colored Swiss Chard mix satisfies everyone's end-of-the-rainbow wishes, with succulent-stemmed leaves in shades of red, yellow, orange, and cream. Grow this chard and you'll see: a good garden is more valuable than a pot of gold.
Consider planting in a spot where its ornamental value can be appreciated. It's easy to grow and tends to perform quite well even when slightly neglected. One of the tastiest ways to prepare chard is to heat some oil over low heat in a tall pan, toss in some sesame seeds until toasted, then add a heap of chard until it wilts. Add soy sauce and a little sweetener: so good!
