Swiss Chard White
Myro Farms Garden Center
White chard is Swiss chard that has white stalks instead of red stalks. The leaves are still generally green and savoyed. It has a milder taste than red chard, and is a bit more toothsome. It is sometimes called “Sweet White Chard” owing to the milder taste — reflecting that it is often considered the best tasting of any coloured stem varieties of chard. Varieties include Argentata (an Italian breed), Fordhook Giant, Large White Ribbed, Paros and Silverado.
