Lucullus

Beta vulgaris var. cicla
HOW TO GROW CHARD

Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, plant out 2 weeks before frost. For fall harvest, transplant 9 weeks before first frost, without additional protection. In a hoophouse, you can plant 2-3 weeks later. Direct sow in spring when soil temperature is at least 50˚F. prefers cool weather, will tolerate some heat. Thinnings can be eaten as baby greens. Water freely during the season. Harvest leaves by snapping them off close to the ground from several plants rather than stripping one. If there are more leaves than you can use, it is best to pick them to reduce disease and encourage a new steady supply of young leaves. Soil pH 6.1-7.8. Hardiness zones 5. Biennial.

Crumpled broad white to light green leaves, yellowish stems. Cooks consider Lucullus the best eating chard you can grow. Cooks like spinach, even in summer heat. Incomparably better than the colored chards, but not showy. Cut and come again. Tags: Type: Semi-Savoy, Color: White, Heritage: Heirloom.
