Green Swiss chard is available year round.
Green Swiss chard, botanical name Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla var. Flavescens, is the common name given to several Green Swiss chard varieties such as Fordhook Giant and Bionda di Lyon. Green Swiss chard is unique to other Swiss chard types as its stalks are white. This is due to the fact that the white stalks contain the flavanoid quercitin, a naturally occuring pigment found in plants. Flavonoids in nature provide visual cues for animal pollinators and seed dispersers to locate their targets. The white pigmentation is triggered by the same effect we see in snowflakes. Ultimately these flavanoids are only visible because of UV light.
Greens Swiss chard has broad wavy and crinkled green leaves with snow white stalks and veins flowing throughout the foliage. Those veins act as nutritional dispersers to the rest of the plant, as the food production occurs in the leaves. The leaves are succulent and tender, their flavor far more mellow than other varieties, which is why Green Swiss chard has been nicknamed "Butter chard". The white stalks are equally more edible and favorable to the palate, lacking the bitterness common with colored varieties.
As Swiss chard is native to the Mediterranean region, many recipes and applications are of Mediterranean influence. Green Swiss chard can be served raw or cooked. It can be sauteed, blanched, stewed, baked, even grilled. It can be added to salads, pastas, pizza, bruschetta, gratins and soups. The chard stalks are edible and add texture and flavor to the dishes they’re cooked into. Complimentary ingredient pairings include citrus, tomatoes, garlic, shallots, chickpeas, white beans, potatoes, aged and melting cheeses, cream, mushrooms, bacon, fennel and herbs such as basil, tarragon and chervil.
As its genus, Beta vulgaris, suggests, chard is, in fact, a beet that has been chosen for leaf production at the expense of root formation. All chard varieties are descendents of the sea beet (B. maritima), a wild seashore plant found growing along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts of Europe and North Africa. Green Swiss chard is easily adaptable to many soils and climates. Plants grow vigorously and produce large yields. Large plants reach two feet in height and are very upright in architecture, making for a showy edible garden element.
