50-60 days. Ruby Red chard will beautify your garden as well as your plate! A vigorous grower with a long growing season, it will provide fresh greens from early summer into fall, and year-round in mild climates. Packed with vitamins and minerals; young leaves are great for salads; any size leaves can be steamed, stir-fried, added to lasagna, omelets, soups and stews, and mixed with other greens. Good container variety.
