Franchi Seeds 1783 Rhubarb Swiss Chard Seeds
V68 - a delicious chard, with a red stalk. Chard (Bieta in Italian) is related to beetroot (Bietola in Italian!) and so you sometimes get red chard. This is why chard has that lovely, earthy flavour and sometimes has a red stalk. Food is about flavour, yes, but also colour. Chard is a great vegetable because it is 2 in one really with the leaf you can use like spinach, and the stalk which is meaty.
