Chard 'White Silver 2' has the best flavour of any chard and looks wonderful with its chunky white-stems. A hugely long producing and worthwhile plant.

Chard is one of my desert island veg because you can pick it for months on end and there are so many fantastic ways to cook it . Make sure to strip the white from the green, as they have different cooking times.

Genus Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla
Variety White Silver 2
Type Hardy Annual
Common Name Swiss Chard, Beet Leaf
Soil Type Fertile, Neutral
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Well-drained
Height 45cm (18in)
Spacing 10-15cm for salad leaves. 30cm for spinach-like leaves.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Direct sow from April-August. Can sow under cover from February onwards in a gutter or seed tray.
Care Tips Protect with cloches in winter for good quality growth. This can be grown in container pots.
Harvesting All year, 4-6 weeks from sowing. In the summer, you can just slice off the whole plant with a sharp knife and within a couple of weeks it will be ready to be picked again. When it's truly cold, harvest the outer leaves only, leaving the heart to continue to grow. Leaves will produce for 4-5 months.
Cooking Notes This is actually two vegetables in one - separate the stem and the leaves, and cook the stem for 2-3 mins longer. Try it Sarah's delicious Ithaca pie recipe - a local version of Spanakopita.
