Special Features:
Chard (Beta vulgaris) is a hardy biennial in the Chenopodiacea family. Chard is a type of beet specialized for leaf production. Tangerine-colored stems with deep green foliage; stem color bright orange. Frost, drought and heat tolerant.  Chard can be direct seeded mid-spring through mid-summer and into fall in warmer regions. Transplants can be started indoors or in a cold frame 4-6 weeks before planting and transplanted outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Transplants result in earlier harvests. Optimal germination temperature is 55-75°F. Days to maturity from direct seeding; if transplanting, subtract 14-21 days.
