Red chard, often called Swiss chard, is one of the healthiest plants that you can grow in your garden. Its large and fleshy leaves are extremely rich in digestible proteins, minerals like iron and calcium as well as vitamins. The leaves have very distinctive, reddish veins that pass over their colour to all dishes made with them. Easy growing and long harvest period make 'Rhubarb Chard' one of the most popular home garden chard varieties. It grows very well on most types of soil.
Rhubarb Chard can be used in the kitchen in a wide variety of ways. It can be cooked like spinach, used for stuffed rolls instead of cabbage or grapevine leaves. Soups prepared with chard are heavenly delicious. Red stalks can be pickled or cooked like green beans or asparagus.
