Northern Lights Mix contains some of the most intense colors of chard that we have ever seen. The 21-26" plants produce eye-appealing stalk colors of deep gold, snow white, deep red and magenta, all with shiny, medium-green colored leaves. The leaf textures range from smooth to lightly crumpled at the young stage, to lightly crumpled to crumpled at the mature stage. The stalks are broad, very tender and fleshy, even at full maturity. A great item for adding color to salad mixes or to harvest young and sell as baby chard.
