50 days. The Lucullus Swiss Chard seed variety produces large green leaves and white stems. This variety is one of the best for gardeners looking for a swiss chard that is delicious and flavorful, as white swiss chard tends to have the best texture and taste.

This crop can grow in zones 6 and up, and the leaves can be harvested after fifty days.
