Aptly named for its bright purple-pink stems, this Swiss chard looks great both in a garden and on a plate! Magenta Sunset is often harvested for its baby leaves, as they add a visually stunning addition to a salad. Allowed to mature, the lightly savoyed leaves have a mild earthy flavor that taste great when sautéed or used as a wrap for sandwiches. This variety of chard tends to bolt early, so consider succession planting for a long harvesting period of baby leaves.
-30 days (baby leaf); 55 days (mature)
