Leaf Beet – Elite


Leaf Beet Elite Seed


Rounder leaf than standard Rhubarb Chard with intense red veining, as with Intense this variety has far fewer green ‘off-types’ than the standard. Mainly grown for baby leaf production, similar to Intense at baby leaf stage but as it matures Elite has a slightly darker red leaf. Good upright habit and uniformity.

Remarks: Elite is more uniform in leaf colour, more rugose and fewer off-types than standard Rhubarb Chard.
