Swiss Chard Seeds - Rainbow Mixture


60 days. The Rainbow Mixture Swiss Chard seed mix is a blend of different colored swiss chard varieties. The chard can grow in zones 6 and up, and the leaves can be harvested after around sixty days. The Rainbow Mixture Swiss Chard leaves have a bitter taste, similar to that of spinach. Our own blend of colored swiss chards includes red, yellow, orange, white, and vivid pink stems that merge into dark green savoyed leaves. The rainbow heads are slow to bolt and quite lovely in bunches. This variety is ornamental/edible landscaping at its best.

Growing Directions:

The Rainbow Mixture Swiss Chard seeds will all appear similar, but each one is a different color in its stem and veins. Seeds should be sown a week or so before the final frost of the season. This variety does have some tolerance to the cold, but it shouldn't be overestimated. It may be beneficial to sow seeds indoors and transplant seedlings, but in most zones 6 or higher, these seeds can be sown directly. Sow the seeds about a quarter of an inch deep in rich, sandy soil. Adding a compost to the soil can help it be at the correct pH, which is between 6 and 6.4, ideally. Sow them in an area with full or partial sun, and keep them consistently watered. Sow seeds with 18" between plants as well as rows. After around 60 days, the stems will be full sized and ready to be harvested. To do so, detach each one from the plant about an inch above the ground without damaging the plant. This will allow it to continue to grow and produce more throughout the summer season.


Grow chard in soil only, not hydroponically, as much more difficult. Chard has a very similar taste to spinach and is in the same family as beet greens.
