Fordhook Giant

60 days — This heavy yielding plant is very tasty and good for home and market. The attractive leaves are dark green, crumpled with stalks that are broad, white and of a fine quality. Introduced by the W. Atlee Burpee & Company, this is how they described it:
"As good as Spinach — Yields all Summer Long ... The rich blue-green leaves are much crinkled or savoyed, and, when fully grown, average 10 inches in width by 2-1/2 feet in length. The texture of the leaves is thick and fleshy, and their quality is highly appreciated when they are boiled. The stems or stalks are pearly white, and they measure 2-1/2 inches in width."[2]
Each packet contains one gram, which can vary from 30 to 50 seeds.
This truly is a giant chard!
This truly is a giant chard! I was able to get a high enough yield to can some for the winter and donate to the local food pantry! Really high germination rates compared to the rainbow chard too.
