Chock-full of nutrition, Fordhook Giant is a large Swiss chard heirloom variety that grows to 28 inches tall. Very productive all season long with dark green, puckered leaves and white stalks. Introduced in 1934 by W. Atlee Burpee and Company. (50-60 days)

Each packet contains approximately 100 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Productive plants thrive in cool weather and soil that is rich in organic matter. Plant directly into the garden 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost. Sow 1/2 inch deep and 1-3 inches apart. Thin rows as plants mature and enjoy the tender shoots in salads.

Harvest outer leaves one inch above the ground as plants mature (5-8 inches tall), new leaves will form in the center of the plant. Continue harvest until plants bolt in late summer.
