Swiss Chard 'Lucullus' is a prolific variety producing an abundance nutritious green leaves on celery-like stalks from early spring until the first frosts. The large, deliciously succulent leaves are mild and sweet, they make a great alternative to spinach, and if left to flower, even the flower stalks can also be cooked and eaten like sprouting broccoli.

How to take care of Swiss Chard Lucullus
