50 days.

The term “Swiss” was used to dis-tinguish chard (a.k.a. perpetual spinach, silverbeet, or crab beet) from French spinach back in the early 10th century. Fordhook Giant stomped down around that time and still produces giant, 24"- to 28"- high leaves with deep green colour and thick, succulent, white stems.
