25 days for salad greens 50 days to full leaf harvest Beta vulgaris

True Magenta Chard’s broad succulent stems glow as if picked from the sky’s fertile cloud fields only revealed by sunrise & sunset, and beg for return to the flame in braising and saute. Its substantial savoy dark green leaf gives perfect contrast and delivers soft sweet / tart flavor…No wonder these are the nutrient rich greens we seek to plant first in Spring when Nature still walks bare, and that we eagerly harvest in the Fall peak as forest leaves shift their hue. Whether plucked young for a striking salad addition, or enjoyed tall and radiant, True Magenta is no trick of the Light.

Newly released in 2023 to spark your imagination, True Magenta Chard is the result of over a decade of vibrant, collaborative Organic breeding and selection by Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) with allied market farmers and seed growers. With every True Magenta packet purchased, you help to support OSA’s ongoing work. To learn more about OSA, visit https://seedalliance.org
