Named after the Roman general. Tasty all summer, won't bolt. Mild and sweet. Savory leaves and pale ivory celery-like stalks. Heavily crumpled with wide, broad white ribs about 20 inches tall. Tolerates hot weather and grows until first frost. Heavy producing plant with good flavor. Non-genetically engineered.

Swiss chard can be directly seeded in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked, or in late summer for a fall crop. Chard is quite versatile because it can withstand summer heat and mild frosts.

Harvest: Cut off individual stalks from the entire plant, leaving 2 inches of stalk at the base. Leave the plants in the ground and they will produce a second crop with smaller leaves.

    Swiss Chard Lucullus Seed Heirloom - 1 Packet

    I waited to review this until after it grew. Very prolific, withstands heat well and excellent recovery after wilting in heat. Clip outer leaves for cooking, inner leaves grow fast. Taste it typical of Swiss chard. Only caution is long germination time, several weeks, be patient.
