Chard – Perpetual spinach/ Erbette (Organic)
A traditional Italian variety with narrow leaves and a pale midrib. Perpetual spinach or beat leaf is actually part of the chard family. It tastes similar to spinach but is slightly earthier in flavour.
Hardy, easy to grow and bolt-resistant in its first season it makes a good replacement for true spinach where growing conditions are difficult.
A very versatile cut-and-come-again leaf that can be used for salad mixes, as leaf vegetable in pies, pastry, as pizza topping or just steamed or blanched on the side of your meal.
