Description

This candy-striped Swiss Chard makes a colourful feature in the veg plot and on the plate. The deep green foliage and vibrant stems of Swiss Chard ‘Peppermint’ even look fabulous in ornamental borders amongst brightly coloured bedding. This easy-to-grow vegetable is extremely versatile in the kitchen with every part of the plant being edible so nothing goes to waste. The leaves can be picked young and added to salads or wait until the plants mature and then steam, stir fry or braise the leaves and stems. Swiss Chard ‘Peppermint’ will supply a continual harvest from July through to October and again sparingly throughout winter until the following spring. Height 60-70cm (24-27in). Spread: 40-50cm (16-20in).

Sowing
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 (½") 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.
More Info
Water Swiss Chard regularly, particularly during dry periods to ensure that the soil remains moist. Harvest regularly by selecting a few stems from each plant to promote fresh growth and to extend the cropping season.
