60 days. Magenta Sunset Swiss chard has striking almost neon pink stems with dark green leaves. These leaves are both beautiful and practical to grow in the home garden. Their leaves are smoother than some other varieties, and grow to be up to two feet in length. This plant can produce a continual harvest throughout the summer season. Leaves are bitter in taste, and taste quite similar to spinach. Both the leaves and stems can be consumed, and are delicious and fresh. You got to love the color!
