Swiss Chard Seeds - Orange


55 days. Orange Swiss Chard is a great ornamental vegetable. Don't just plant it in the garden, add some in the landscaping. These bright orange stalks will spice up any area, and they grow abundantly throughout the whole summer season. This variety produces dark green leaves on bright orange stems. Plants do well in zones 6 and up. When planting for harvest, allow 55 days before harvesting the stems, and do so by taking them off the plant individually for a harvest all summer long. The taste of these leaves is very similar to spinach.

Growing Directions:

Orange Swiss Chard seeds require a moist and rich soil. The soil should have a pH between 6 and 6.4; adding compost to the soil can help equalize the pH and provide the plants with the proper nutrients. Sow the seeds a week or two before the final frost of the season. Swiss Chard is relatively hardy and can handle germinating in cooler temperatures. Cover each seed with about ¼" of an inch of soil. Keep the rows spaced around 24" apart and the plants between 18 and 24" apart. Keep the roots watered regularly, and be sure that the plants are set up to grow in an area that has full sun. After around 55 days, the Swiss Chard will be ready for harvest. When removing leaves, be sure to keep the plant in tact as well as you can, so that they can continue to grow.


Orange Swiss Chard is an excellent variety for both aesthetic and eating purposes. These swiss chard leaves are delicious and loaded with nutrients, making them an excellent addition to many dishes.
