What are the pros? Mild spinach flavor, few pests
What are the cons? Not good for salad
We ate this easy to grow veggie all summer. I threw it in with pasta to cook a minute. I steamed it and served with butter. I added to soups. Caution: eating raw, mature chard causes my throat to close. A friend said his throat got scratchy after eating it raw. (I heard it has a similar substance to raw rhubarb.) Only a few pest nibbles. Tender no matter what the leaf size. Did not yellow in fall. Great flavor, like mild spinach. I grew another variety that was not as dark a color and not as tasty.
