Swiss Chard ‘Bright Lights’ (AAS Winner)

1998 AAS Winner. Improved for colors, stems can be yellow, gold, orange, pink, violet or striped in addition to red or white. Easy to grow from seed or bedding plants. Harvest in 4-5 weeks. For use as a garnish, in salads and in many tasty recipes, Bright Lights has great taste. It’s a standout in any garden, even with the flowers. Both the leaves and stalks are edible raw, steamed, and sautéed, but avoid the lower 2-3 inches of the stalk as it may be fibrous and tough.
