Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Bright Lights Chard Seeds
Bright Lights Chard (56 days)
Want to light up your garden with a neon glow? Try Bright Lights Chard! Most folks grow this variety for the colors because they are amazing, but don't forget how tasty it is also!
Bright Lights Chard produces copious amounts of 18"-22" leaves in a wide assortment of colors. Use the small leaves just like spinach! Stir fry the large leaves with garlic and chicken. Your dinner guest will be wowed by not only the colors, but the flavor.
Remember to blanch the bigger leaves in a pot of boiling water with one tablespoon of salt for 5-10 minutes then drain. This virtually eliminates any of the bitter flavor you sometimes get in older leaves. Young leaves we use fresh in salads or veggie wraps.
Bright Lights is an outstanding chard that over winters here in the Pacific North West with no problem. Yes, growth slows down, but we keep harvesting it right on through the year.
