Swiss Chard 'Green Wave'

Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla var. flavescens, Leaf Beet, Spinach Beet

  • New in 2014
Resembling a perpetual spinach beet, this RHS AGM variety produces pure green leaves and stems.

The mature leaves and stems of leaf beet are superb as a steamed vegetable. The glossy crinkly green leaves make an attractive addition to the vegetable plot or even to the flower border, where plants will stand in good condition without bolting. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 40cm (16").
