Probably the best tasting Red Chard. The taste is mild, juicy and delicious with no harsh aftertastes unlike most Red Chards. Ideal for successional sowing through the spring and summer for both ‘baby leaf’ or as mature plants. High tolerance to downymildew.

Will need some watering if we get some dry weather – but a few rows of this leaf beet should provide plenty of edibles!
