Details

Rhubarb Chard is one of the prettiest greens around. The plants are vigorous and leafy, making them a gorgeous (and healthy) edible landscaping plant. Rhubarb Chard boasts the brightest of red stalks, with brilliant green leaves that can span 12 inches across. Just a few leaves are enough for a summer saute.
Number of Seeds 75 seeds
Spacing in Row 12-18 inches
Spacing Between Rows 18 inches
Planting Depth 1/2 inch
Days to Germination 5-10 days
Days to Maturity 60 days
Height at Maturity 18 inches
Width at Maturity 8 inches
Direct sow beginning 2-3 weeks before last frost, or start indoors 3 weeks earlier and transplant. In-row spacing should be 12 inches apart (thinning makes great braised greens!). Harvest outer leaves for continual production. One sowing will provide harvestable greens all season, though it's smart to do a mid-summer sowing in case disease pops up. Sowing monthly in succession would provide a steady crop of the most tender, young leaves. Like all plants harvested for their leaves, chard appreciates fertile soil.
