Swiss Chard (Leaf Beet)
Swiss chard is primarily grown at high density to produce babyleaf for salad purposes, but there is increasing interest in a more mature teen leaf or wholehead product to offer as bagged greens for the kitchen.
Graded seed: Beet seed is a corky cluster of several seeds, and seed count can vary significantly with seed lot, variety and grade, with a range from 30-90 per gram. Seed is available in natural form or rubbed and graded with various grade options. Ask for details.
Treated seed options: Several fungicide treatments are available in Film Coat or Steep options, subject to off label approval. Varieties Red Chard, Giallo and Bulls Blood are usually available Apron treated from stock. Other varieties or treatments available on request.
