Bright Lights Swiss Chard from seed.
Hi Gardening Friends Here is a great Swiss Chard that haves been bred by the late New Zealand amateur breeder John Eaton. He is the one that developed this seed variety. Which is the gold standard of multicolored Swiss chard. I will be growing it in my greenhouse and in my garden. Also will be trying it in pots. Happy Gardening Gardener Den Bright Lights Swiss Chard Seed Product ID: 703D The gold standard for multicolored Swiss chard. Lightly savoyed, green or bronze leaves with stems of gold, pink, orange, purple, red, and white with bright and pastel variations. Consistent growth rate and strong bolt resistance across all colors makes this a superior mix. Direct seed or transplant to allow separating out the individual colors. Suitable for production year round, but somewhat less frost hardy than normal for chard. The late New Zealand amateur breeder John Eaton developed Bright Lights; Johnny's selects and maintains the different color stocks and produces the seeds. AAS winner. Decorticated (rubbed) seeds.
