ORGANIC Silverbeet "Swiss Chard Rainbow" 50 Seeds

Beta vulgaris cicla


A unique blend of green white red gold and magenta Swiss chards. Before blending seed is decorticated and sized alike for optimum uniform blending and planting. Matures over a period of 50 to 65 days. ORGANIC.

This is a cut and come again plant, providing leaves for some months before going to flower. Can re-sprout from around the base if cut off when it starts to flower.

Reasonably frost and heat tolerant. Grows well in most soils. For prolific growth apply compost, or well-rotted manure. Resistant to most plant diseases. The multi-coloured ones look good in a flower border.

Culinary hints - cooking and eating Silverbeet

Wash thoroughly and inspect the back of the leaves for insects.
Chop and put in a saucepan with very little water ( or just what is on the leaves)
Cover and cook over a low to medium heat until the leaves collapse.
A small amount of nutmeg enhances the flavour.
