• Chard - Sunset Selection

Beta vulgaris

Chard 'Sunset Selection' is a variety with stunning yellow-orange stems and green leaves. This chard will also grow well in autumn and winter in a frost-free greenhouse.

This open-pollinated Swiss chard variety is a very special ornament for the vegetable bed due to the bright yellow-orange shining leaf stems and ribs. Paired with the light green of the leaves, the leafy vegetable is a decorative attention-grabber, 
which is also often planted as an eye-catcher in the flower bed.

Chard is an excellent vegetable for beginners because it grows in almost any soil and is extremely easy to care for. The leaves can be harvested regularly and you can really have a rich harvest during a garden season if you only cut the outer leaves. The vegetables are very rich in vitamins and can be used in many ways in the kitchen. Chard leaves can be used raw as a salad or briefly blanched as leafy vegetables.
