Rhubarb Chard is a Swiss chard variety with bright, red stems and green leaves. The stems are eaten in the same way as asparagus, while the leaves can be eaten like spinach. You can therefore choose to only pick the leaves, so new leaves can grow out, or the entire plant approximately 2-3 cm from the soil. This tasty vegetable is often cultivated annually, but is a biennial plant that thrives in humus-rich, nutrient-rich and well-drained soil.

Plant your seeds when the soil has warmed up. Sowing too early in cold soil can lead to flowering during the first year. Make sure to water before sowing and keep the seeds moist until they germinate.
