Fire Fresh (Hybrid)
Light up your salad with Fire Fresh Swiss chard baby greens! Fire Fresh has bright red stems (petioles) and vivid green leaves that add bold color to baby leaf salads, spring mixes, or stir- fries. The crunchy leaves are round to oval with a slight texture. Fast-growing plants have an upright habit that keeps the leaves clean for harvest. Fire Fresh is flexible: harvest at baby size in about 25-35 days or at full leaf size in about 55-65 days. Swiss chard leaves hold their color and resist the leaf miner damage that discolors other leafy crops. Fire Fresh has a premium disease package: HR: Cb \\ IR: Pfb.

HR = High resistance: plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pathogen or pest pressure.
IR = Intermediate resistance: plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to “highly resistant” varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pathogen or pest pressure.
T = Tolerance: The ability of a plant variety to endure abiotic stress without serious consequences for growth, appearance and yield.
