(53–63 days. Open-pollinated) Standing alone as the only two-toned Swiss chard, Peppermint’s clean white stems sport blazing fuchsia streaks, making it not only one of the most eye-catching varieties, but its coloration also reveals a potent antioxidant content. Topped off with wide, rumpled, lustrous green leaves, Peppermint provides ample harvests of wholesome fresh greens for both warm and cool weather plantings. A splendid addition to salad, it keeps its pink tones even if lightly steamed. Peppermint is so beautiful you may have trouble cutting it for kitchen use! Holds well in the field with strong resistance to bolting.
