Benefits of Swiss Chard
Buying Swiss Chard or Growing Your Own from Seeds
Today, the regular chard with white stalks and green, ruffled leaves is available year round in the supermarkets in the US, UK, and Canada. During its peak season, you may also be able to find some of the more exotic varieties of the Swiss chard at farmers markets near you. Use the opportunity, and buy some less common chard varieties, such as red chard (e.g. Ruby Chard or Rhubarb Chard cultivars), or a bunch of rainbow chard which is typically a mix of white stemmed Swiss chard, red chard, and golden chard.
