Baby Red Chard
Ruby Chard is also known as Bulls Blood beet – the leaves of the beet bulb better know as beetroot!
Chard is a member of the Swiss Chard family, which is grown widely throughout Europe, USA and north Africa and has a mild ‘earthy’ and creamy flavour. The name chard literally refers to the broad middle stalks rather than the leafy part of the plant, which grows in a mix of different stem colours. Many people will be familiar with Red Chard, which has a bright and attractive oval shaped green leaf with a red stem. Red Chard has a distinct flavour and, when young, it can be treated like spinach and eaten raw or cooked.
