Called “Bright Lights,” this variety of Swiss chard is as pretty as it is tasty. Large leaves with a prominent, flat wide mid-rib grow in an upright rosette that is beautiful in a bed or container. Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciates it in spring in hot climates. Highly nutritious, the leaves taste a lot like spinach, but this plant is a member of the beet family. Frost tolerant. Harvested chard freezes well.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully colored vegetable. Very tasty if you like greens. In the northern tier of states at least, this is probably the best cut and come-back vegetable in the garden. Leaves and stalks are edible, and can be harvested up to and even after a couple of light frosts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good Spinach to eat. It grew fast! Me and my girlfriend planted these 2 weeks before memorial day this year and we were picking them this morning (6-23-15). By far the BEST spinach to have.
