description for "Swiss Chard: Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris var. flavescens 'Neon Glow'"

Simply WOW! in the garden. 'Neon Glow's eye-catching color combo has gorgeous magenta and gold stalks in vivid colors that contrast beautifully with deep-green savoyed leaves. 'Neon Glow' Swiss chard was carefully selected from multicolored New Zealand heirloom chard, so you'll find its flavor sweeter and milder tasting than ordinary green varieties. Grow this "edible landscaping" chard for bright color and delicious eating over a long season. A striking addition to both vegetable and flower beds. Begin harvesting when plants are well established and have 6 to 8 stalks. Both the crunchy succulent stalks and leaves make great eating. Break stems off at the base of the plant, always leaving at least 3 to 4 stalks to allow for regrowth. Chard is delicious sauteed, steamed, braised or stirfried. It pairs beautifully with the flavors of olive oil, garlic and lemon. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
