Spinach Beet Seeds - Rhubarb Chard

Leaf Beet

“This variety wouldn’t look out of place in the flower bed, with its deep red stalks and dark green, crumpled leaves. You can use it as a back drop to your cut flower bed its that ornamental. So called, because over the centuries, novice cooks have mistaken it for true rhubarb. However, it is better in a chard and cheddar quiche, than a ‘Rhubarb’ and apple crumble! It will add colour to any dish, with the leaves being a great alternative to spinach. It has the mildest flavour of all the chards. I grow ‘Rhubarb’ chard for baby leaves, they make a beautiful bistro salad.”

Sow in drills 1.25cm (½") deep and 45cm (1½') apart into warm, moist, weed-free soil during spring/summer and thin out gradually to 23cm (9") apart. Alternatively, sow in trays using quality compost. Cover with compost. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 9cm (3½") pots and harden off for 2-3 weeks before planting out. Sow every 2-3 weeks through the summer for continuous leaf production.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
