Fordhook Giant Swiss Chard is the perfect green to grow, even in hot weather. Broad, dark green leaves have a delicate spinach flavor. Stems are broad, thick and white in color. Leaves can be picked at any time or cut leaf stalks just above ground level and the plant will continue to produce all season long. Both stalks and leaves are edible. Delicious in salads, quiche or steamed with butter. Freezes well.
