Aka ‘Perpetual Spinach’ or Spinach Beet Chard Costa Verde
Light green, smooth leaves which are cooked liked spinach. If you like to eat the legs of the chard then we recommend the Swiss chard above as they are larger. This variety can be harvested 1.5 months later than Swiss Chard, however. Grows again quickly after cutting and is commonly called Perpetual Spinach although it is not true spinach it doesn’t bolt like spinach and goes on and on or spinach beet bearing in mind that this variety resembles spinach more than chard but is a beet (related to beetroot!).
