description for "Swiss Chard: Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris var. flavescens 'Perpetual Spinach'"

Multiple crops are possible with 'Perpetual Spinach' chard. This oddly named variety, derives its name from its use as a substitute to leaf spinach. This easy to grow selection, is much less sensitive to heat than spinach, therefore enabling two to three cuttings per season. Enjoy in salads or steamed. Maturity in 50 days. Edited by S. Derr
