This classic yellow Swiss Chard has succulent deep golden stalks with jade-green, slightly crumpled leaves. The stalks and midribs are thick, broad and very tender and fleshy.
An excellent variety with a golden colour that holds well into maturity.
Growing 60 cm tall Golden Sunrise is quite a frost tolerant and wonderfully flavourful.
Add to salads as baby leaves in 28 days or wait for full-sized rich golden bunches at maturity. Chard is a healthy, easy-to-grow alternative to spinach which is more tolerant of heat.
Adaptable to most well-drained garden soils, prefers an open sunny position.
