This chard is so sweet & tender we have used it as lettuce for tacos, etc. Great cooked, too. Will come back a second year if not disturbed.

No spots!
Reviewed By: John (Williamstown, MA)
I have used this variety for a few years now after planting this and Fordhook Giant the same year. Both did great but this variety had no black spots on the stalks like Forhook Giant gets. I blanch and freeze the greens for use all winter.
