Also called Five Color Silverbeet chard. Rainbow chard was sold by Thompson and Moran Seed co. in the early 1970s, but disappeared in the U. S. by the early 1980s.
It was later discovered growing in Australia and introduced back to the market.
This chard produces amazing colors in shades of red, purple, pink, orange, yellow and white.
Delicious stir fried or as steamed greens.
Good spinach substitute.
Swiss Chard stalks can be eaten like celery.
Great border for your flower garden.
Here's a photo of our beautiful crop of Rainbow Chard along with the beets which also came from Sustainable seeds. Both are thriving, and today we harvested some beets. To be honest, I look at these beautiful plants as miraculous gifts from God.
Seeds were able to geminate in high heat, and are thriving!
