Silverbeet or Chard (Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris, Cicla-Group and Flavescens-Group) is a leafy green vegetable often used in cooking.
In the Flavescens-Group-cultivars, the leaf stalks are large and are often prepared separately from the leaf blade. The leaf blade can be green or reddish in color; the leaf stalks also vary in color, usually white, yellow, or red.
Silverbeet has highly nutritious leaves making it a popular addition to healthful diets (like other green leafy vegetables).
