  • About

Swiss chard is a very popular vegetable throughout Italy but particularly in the provinces around Rome. Swiss chard has an unmistakable flavour and texture and is very easy to grow. It also is one of those vegetables which is attractive enough to grow as an ornamental edible in a border. If you really cannot get hold of chard, large cos lettuce leaves are the closest possible alternative.
