People from the Grisons love this Swiss chard. Their national dish, known as Capuns, depends on the tender and savoury leaves of this variety. Since it is hard to keep a secret to oneself, people from lower regions have discovered this specialty and now it can be yours.
Sow in late April to mid-July in rows 20–30 cm apart. Chard loves heavy group soils. Mature compost in abundance and abundant watering help the flavours develop. Harvest, depending on the seeding date, from June to October. Late seeding actually produces an additional harvest in the following spring.
