Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard is a green that has a variety of stem colors including white, red, pink, yellow and orange. We grow ‘Rainbow Chard’ which features all colors and ‘Fordhook Giant’, which is the white stem variety. Chard is related to beets, but has been breed for the leaves, not the root. Like all greens, Swiss chard is loaded with nutrients, making it one of the healthiest vegetables. The entire plant, stem and all, can be used in your cooking. Swiss chard makes a great substitute for spinach and is especially good in quiches and casseroles.
