A great addition to any garden, “Ruby Red” Swiss Chard, also known as “Rhubarb” Swiss Chard, was first introduced in 1857. Originating from the Mediterranean region, this Heirloom variety produces bright candy apple red stalks and veins with crumpled, dark green leaves. Plants grow to an average height of 45-51cm (18-20”) tall with a spread of 45-61cm (18-24”) wide. Individual leaves can be harvested for greens as soon as they reach 15-20cm (6-8”) tall. You can harvest the whole plant at the surface of the soil, but to ensure continued growth and another harvest, leave an inch of stem. Outer stalks can also be harvested individually, leaving the heart to grow. Cook the stalks as you would asparagus and the leaves as you would spinach, or enjoy both raw in salads.
