Swiss chard or simply chard is a leafy green vegetable belonging to a group of plant species called Beta Vulgaris. They practically belong to the same group as spinach and beets.
Their physical structure closely resembles celery. Ironically, the name “Swiss” chard is not an indication to its originating country (Switzerland) as most people believe.
Instead, this green leafy vegetable originates from the Mediterranean region. The name “Swiss chard” was given as a way to differentiate it from the traditional spinach around that region.
Swiss chard is available in various forms, each unique in their appearance and taste as well. It is also known by alternate names in different places such as silverbeet, Roman kale, spinach beet, mangold, etc.
