Swiss chard is one of the most nutritious vegetables available! Did you know, swiss chard did not actually originate in Switzerland, but, comes from further South, in the Mediterranean? It was revered by the Ancient Greeks and Romans for its medicinal properties, and high level of nutrients. This veggie is an awesome source of multiple nutrients including: vitamins B,K, A, and C, and minerals such as iron, magnesium and potassium, plus adding fiber to your diet. Swiss chard is low in calories and is ideal for anyone trying to lose weight, and eat healthier.

As chard prefers cooler weather, plant your St. Clare’s heirloom swiss chard seeds in Spring or Fall, in fertile, just slightly acidic soil, with plenty of direct sunlight. You’ll want to make sure the previous crop grown in that spot was not beets, as swiss chard and beets are in the same family, and this could make your shoots more susceptible to leaf miners, and cause rotten patches on the leaves. When planting your Swiss chard seeds, remember this plant is a biennial, unless you live in the extreme North, then you may just get one season.

Swiss chard leaves and stalks can be eaten when they are either young and tender, or tough and more mature, so no worries if you missed harvesting them young! The leaves are similar in taste to spinach; however, Swiss chard is not usually used raw in salads, like spinach, rather, it is generally steamed or boiled. If you haven’t tried growing chard before, you ought to add it to your seeds purchase this year. Try something new!

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
