The most bolt-resistant red chard. The long-anticipated result of an on-farm collaborative breeding project between Johnny’s (from Johnny’s Seed) breeder Dr. John Navazio, the Organic Seed Alliance, and Nash’s Organic Farm in Sequim, WA. This variety was selected for exceptional resistance to bolting, to which red chard is characteristically susceptible. Rhubarb Supreme boasts a beautiful bunch, with wide, rich red petioles and lustrous, dark-green leaves with a deep savoy curl. OP Photo and text courtesy of Johnny’s Seed.
Care: Plant 24″ apart in sun to light shade.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop.
