Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
Arguably the best tasting Red Chard with a mild, juicy flavour and, unlike many Red Chards, has no harsh aftertastes. With excellent tolerance to downy mildew, Swiss Chard 'Fantasy' is ideal for successional sowings through the spring and summer for a delicious crop of both 'baby leaf' and mature plants. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months
Water Swiss Chard regularly, particularly during dry periods to ensure that the soil remains moist. Harvest Leaf Beet regularly by selecting a few leaves from each plant to promote fresh growth and to extend the cropping season.
Direct sow Leaf Beet seed outdoors from March to August. Grow Swiss Chard in a well prepared, moist, fertile seedbed in full sun or partial shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills 30cm (12") apart. Thin seedlings to 7cm (3") apart for 'baby leaves' which will be ready to harvest approximately 50 days from sowing. For larger chards/leaves thin to 15cm (6") apart, or 23cm (9") for mature plants.
