Broad white stems and savoyed dark green leaves. This standard chard was introduced by Burpee in 1934 and is an open pollinated variety that is one of the most productive vegetables anyone could ever grow. It is tough taking the high heat and humidity of summer and is productive through most of the winter unless it gets down in the low teens or single digits then it simply rests till warmer temps and takes off growing again. It also grows very well in containers and is very attractive with its dark green leaves and white stalks. Heavy yields of delicious fresh greens.
