Peppermint Swiss Chard is just the same as most traditional bright lights rainbow swiss chard but its got a very fun ornamental pink to white striped “peppermint” style coloring on its stalks. This chard does not taste like peppermint! it tastes like chard! We’ve really confused some of our shoppers with this beauty but we wont let that stop us from encouraging everyone to plant it in their garden for its value as a beautiful ornamental and edible food crop. Peppermint swiss chard also has strong disease tolerance, compact upright growing habit and high yields. Tender leaves are delicious cooked and raw, stems can be eaten pickled, raw or cooked. Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K, and C. It is also rich in minerals, dietary fiber, and protein. Chard can be grown in little groupings of 2-3 plants so each of our potted plants contains a few so you can get more yield from your planting. Chard leaves can be eaten at any age including tiny baby sprouts, so whenever you want some chard just snip the individual leaves at the base leaving the growing tip intact.
