A rainbow right in the garden! A chard commercially introduced by British seed company Thompson & Morgan back in the 18th century as “Rainbow Chard”. This strain was picked up and revitalized by Diggers in Australia once T&M dropped it in 1970, bringing the washed out colours back to life. Stems of bright red, pink, orange, yellow and white with leaves of dark green. Add them as baby leaves to salad mixes, or harvest them larger for braising, steaming or stir-fries. ~ 70 seeds/g

Les tiges sont rouges, roses, oranges, jaunes et blancs avec des feuilles vert foncé.  Ajouter les petites feuilles («baby leaves») au mélange de salades, ou récolter lorsqu’elles sont plus larges pour braiser, étuver ou sauter.
