Beta Vulgaris Var Cicla
The Fantasia Orange Swiss chard is a open pollinated biennial but is cultivated as an annual. This variety reaches full maturity in 65 to 70 days, and will be between 8 to 10 in. You can however in as little as 40 days begin picking at the plants, or thinning down your row for an early baby green harvest . The vibrant orange veins, midribs, and stalks add a colorful splash to your garden, the farmers market, or the table! This variety will hold its bright orange color when cooked and the baby leaves are great for making salads.
