A green chard with bright red stems ideal as an inclusion in salad mixes. ROYAL RED produces a very uniform, even growing crop allowing for ease of harvest. ROYAL RED shows strong tolerance to bacterial spotting, resulting in clean leaves year round.

The vivid red stems provide for an unusual colour inclusion in salad mixes while the thick leaves provide texture and weight, even in the faster growing Summer months when the thick leaves allow for extended shelf life.
