Succulent Swiss chard, also known as spinach-chard or silverbeet, is one of the favorite green leafy vegetables of European origin.
Chard features distinctly large dark-green leaves with prominent petiole and well-developed edible stalk. In general, its leaves harvested at various stages of maturity depending on their use in recipes. While the whole plant with its tender young leaves can be harvested for salad preparation, mature, over-size leaves with a slightly tough textured stem may be picked up for sautéing and cooking in dishes.
This super green is far more tender and tasty than what chards are known for – a delightful treat!
