Spinach seeds

Swiss chard fordhook

The DLTP farmers bought the Fordhook Giant variety from Royal Seed which:

  • Grows well, even in a hot climate

  • Has large and crumpled leaves

  • Grows to 65 cm

  • Matures 60-70 days after transplanting.

Always buy certified seeds. 95-100% of the seeds will grow, so you will use less seed. Certified seeds also:

  • Give high yields of good quality

  • Are resistant to some diseases

  • They grow fast, strongly and uniformly". 

Buy certified seeds from agrovets. Fordhook Giant seeds come in pack sizes of 10g, 25g, 50g, 100g, 250g and 500g.
