I received these seeds in a grab bag I purchased from Annie's Heirlooms last fall and planted them in early February (2012) in pots. They're big enough now that I can start clipping off a few leaves here and there. The leaves are light green and slightly thicker than other varieties of Swiss Chard I've grown. It seems to be a milder flavor than most Swiss Chard, but is still stronger than spinach. I've been chopping up just a few leaves at a time very finely to mix into spinach and lettuce salads. I really love this variety. It might be my new "go-to" variety of Swiss Chard and I'll definitely be purchasing more seeds for it.
