Leaf beet has large, fleshy, tender, deep-green leaves and thick, crisp stalks. Although they’re unrelated, leaf beet is similar to spinach, but with a stronger flavour.
This rainbow mix included different coloured stalks and ribs – some white, some golden-orange and some red. They look fantastic in the flower borders as well as the vegetable patch and will last most of the year. Pick the leaves young and eat raw as baby salad leaves, or cook leaves and midribs separately as a side vegetable.
Six rainbow chard plants included
