Swiss Chard Peppermint

This candy-striped Swiss Chard makes a colourful feature in the veg plot and on the plate. The deep green foliage and vibrant stems of Swiss Chard ‘Peppermint’ even look fabulous in ornamental borders amongst brightly coloured bedding. This easy-to-grow vegetable is extremely versatile in the kitchen with every part of the plant being edible so nothing goes to waste. The leaves can be picked young and added to salads or wait until the plants mature and then steam, stir fry or braise the leaves and stems. Swiss Chard ‘Peppermint’ will supply a continual harvest from July through to October and again sparingly throughout winter until the following spring.
