At this point, I've got about 40 plants that I started from seed, scattered throughout my 2000 square feet garden.. I've plunked it at the entrance to the garden, amongst the tomatoes, near the potatoes, by my pole bean trellises.. wherever!
The plants are bolt resistant - even in the summer heat. I haven't actually lost any to bolting, and they have the typical flavour of Swiss chard. I can't tell you how many times I've been asked if they taste like peppermint. Nope, sorry.. they just look like peppermint.
An added bonus: the plants are open-pollinated, so you can save the seed and grow it again next year.
|STRIPED! Seriously striped.|
|Such a beautiful bunch|
