Common name : Swiss Chard

Scientific name : Beta vulgaris (Cicla Group)

Family : Amaranthaceae

Native land : Europe, North Africa and Western Asia

Swiss chard is an annual leafy garden vegetable that is closely related to beets. It is largely distinguished from the beets by its lack of enlarged fleshy underground roots. Swiss chard typically forms a dense rosette of upright-arching, crumpled, glossy, medium green leaves, each having distinctive midribs and long, broad, colourful crisp leafstalks. Both the leafstalks (petioles) and the leaves are edible. It is a good substitute for spinach.
