50 days. The Lucullus Swiss Chard seed variety produces large green leaves and white stems. This variety is one of the best for gardeners looking for a swiss chard that is delicious and flavorful, as white swiss chard tends to have the best texture and taste. These stems are strong and crunchy, with luscious leaves, both excellent steamed or used in salads. The taste of the leaves is quite like that of spinach, with bitter undertones. This crop can grow in zones 6 and up, and the leaves can be harvested after fifty days.
Lucullus Swiss Chard seeds should be sown in soil that is rich, but loose, with a pH between 6 and 6.4. The best and most simple way to achieve this is to mix compost and sand into the soil. Sow the seeds about ¼" of an inch deep in the soil, keeping rows around 18" apart and plants 18-24" apart. The soil should be kept moist throughout their growth, and they should be planted in an area that has full sun. After 50 days, you can start to harvest the stems. They can be taken off of the plant, or the plant can be cut at the base, 1" above the soil surface. This will allow for healthy regrowth throughout the summer season.
Deliciously bitter and fresh in taste, these leaves are a member of the beet family, but taste more like spinach. Steam them or use them in a salad.
