Description

FORDHOOK GIANT CHARD is an American vintage variety first introduced in 1934 by W. Atlee Burpee. Features broad dark green deeply crumped leaves with all white veins and stalks. Grows 24"-28" and the stalks are 2.5" wide. Abundant producer all season long - even after light frosts. Chard is loaded with carotenoids that protect aging eyes! And Biotin to correct brittle nails! As tasty as spinach and doesn't wilt or bolt at the first heat of summer like spinach does. Use when young fresh in salads or chop and saute larger leaves in olive oil and garlic. 50-60 days. 100 Seeds.

NUTRITION: Low in calories and fats, chard of any kind is recommended for weight reduction diets. But it is so much more. Excellent source of phytonutrients, high in Vitamins C, K, A and the B's. Also a good source of minerals such as copper, calcium, iron, potassium, manganese and phosphorous. Regular inclusion of chard in the diet is found to prevent osteoporosis, iron deficiency anemia, vitamin A deficiency and believed to protect from cardiovascular diseases and colon and prostate cancers.

GROWING TIPS: Direct sow short rows in sunny location in spring, summer and fall. Will overwinter in zone 5 and perhaps in 6-7 with a cold frame. Good candidate for your aerogarden as well or container growing.
