Rainbow Chard
Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla

50 to 60 days — Also known by its synonym, 'Five Color Silverbeet', 'Rainbow Chard' is an Australian heirloom that is a tender variety with orange, yellow, pink, white, and red stalks, which make it very ornamental.

'Rainbow Chard' is an example of a variety that was nearly lost, but relocated and eventually re-released. Each packet contains one gram, which can vary from 30 to 50 seeds.
Grows Very Well
I have had no trouble with diseases or pests on the chard, except for a couple caterpillars. They are right next to pepper plants that were attacked by leaf-miners, but they do not seem to have had any effect on the chard. I have about six plants planted in the backyard. Since mature chard is a little on the bitter side for me, I usually harvest it when it is still fairly young, maybe four to five inches in length. Beautiful colors, although the plants that we have planted only produce about 1/3 of the greens my boyfriend and I use. The New Zealand spinach I also purchased from here has given more.

It tastes great.
Chard couldn't get much better than the rainbow chard. I don't grow anything to just be a ornamental plant so I love nutrient dense foods with beautiful foliage. It tastes great too. And I have gotten kids who are picky eaters to try it due to the new colors they can explore!
