Botanical Interests Organic Fordhook Giant Swiss Chard Seeds
Swiss Chard Fordhook Giant may just be the perfect vegetable! It has a very long harvest period; it's nutritious; it's attractive; it can be eaten in dozens of ways, and it tolerates partial shade. Introduced in 1934, Fordhook Giant is a vigorous grower that handles heat and light frost. You can eat the young leaves in salads, then save the larger leaves for steaming, stir-frying, or chopping and sautéing with olive oil and garlic or onion. It can be used in any dish that calls for spinach, making it great in omelets and lasagna. With sufficient moisture, it can be grown for many months without bolting. It is very easy to grow and does well in containers.
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. Early spring, 2-4 weeks before the average last frost date or when soil temperature reaches 50 degrees.
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Contents: Beta - vulgaris

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
