Product Description
Easy to grow and nutritious, Lucullus Swiss Chard produces high yields of mild-flavored, sweet, green leaves for months. It's one of the earliest chard varieties available—and packed with nutrition, including vitamins A and K. The savoyed, dark green leaves can be eaten raw in salads at the baby or small, tender stage, or sautéed and cooked into your favorite recipes at the more mature stages. Its pale ivory, celery-like stalks can be cooked into soups and other dishes. Lucullus Swiss Chard will keep producing until frost. It does not bolt and tolerates hot weather. 60 days to maturity.
