Growing Directions:

Ruby Red Swiss Chard plants are meant to be grown in the summer, however this variety does have some resistance to the cold, just not too much frost. Sow the seeds two to three weeks before the final frost of the season in rich and sandy soil. The area should have full sun, or at least partial sun throughout most of the day. It can be beneficial to sow these seeds indoors in cooler areas, but for the most part these plants thrive in areas in zones 6 or above. Sow the seeds about a quarter of an inch deep with rows and plants 18” apart. After around 55 days, these plants are ready to be harvested. Take the stems off individually to keep the plant producing more of them throughout the summer. Be careful not to damage the plant when doing so.
