Silverbeet- Ruby RedSilverbeet- Ruby Red

This stuff is great. Vigorous grower and a stunning colour.
Louisa W 12 September 2020

Great germination

I'm growing these as an autumn/winter crop here in Brisbane, and in our warm April we are having, I've had 100% germination in just 4 days. I've never grown them before, and the little red shoots were a surprising delight! Very strong little seedlings already. Excellent, fresh seed stock.

So yummy & fresh

These were super easy to grow. Started seedlings in pots then transferred to garden bed. Now have a steady supply of yummy silverbeet. We get a full bunch every night just by picking off one or two leaves from each plant.
