All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 1998

Garden Merit Award from the Royal Horticulture Society

These brilliantly-colored stems are so beautiful that you may forget to harvest the succulent, sweet leaves. Electric yellows, pinks, crimsons, oranges, purples, whites, and greens—some even striped—festoon the 20-inch stems. Many keep their color even after cooking, and all are delightfully festive.

Bright Lights is a mix of green- and black-leaved Swiss Chard in all brilliant colors, including stripes, streaks, and bicolors. It's utterly eye-catching in garden or container, which is one reason it has received both an All-America Selection and an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticulture Society. The other reason is flavor—these stems keep their colors even after light cooking, and have a rich, crisp, peppery bite. The star of the cool-season veggie garden.

Great in containers and showy enough for the flower garden, Bright Lights is a classic asked for by name in nurseries and garden centers. Like all Swiss chard, it grows readily from seed, and will regrow if leaves are cut back to 2 inches from the crown. Both leaves and stems are delicious.

My Favorite Green

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

When I lived in Alberta Canada, this was my favorite green. It kind of tastes like spinach, but produces much longer without bolting. I've moved to Georgia, and plan to plant it this fall as a winter crop.

Hardy, Colorful & Tasty

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Looking for ways to add greens into our diet, so I planted these last year. Beautiful, colorful centerpiece in the garden and they are quite tasty. I added them to soups mostly. Chopped it all back and it came back better than ever this year. Very vigorous!
