No, it has a blander taste. blander than spinach and soft like spinach when cooked.

I like to saute with onions and garlic. Add bit of balsamic vinegar at the end. Sometimes I add raisins and feta cheese to make it fancy for company.

My neighbour just gave me a wheelbarrow load of over wintered Swiss chard...
I will pick the small leaves off and toss the stalks into the field for the deer...

We finished the last of our chard last night for dinner. The deer did a real number on anything remaining in the garden.

If you are starting swiss chard, I suggest the variety "Bright Lights" you get a lot of color in your garden along with the healthy greens.

I plant my Swiss Chard in a spot that they get some shade from the afternoon sun. I also continually harvest the outer stalks, leaving the inner younger stalks to continue to grow. This gives me a harvest from late spring until th first hard frost with out it getting bitter.

I have been googling this to no avail, I am hoping someone in this community has an answer to my Swiss chard dilemma. So I have a beautiful patch of chards that I have been harvesting since July, and the last batch turned bitter! Also the leaves are now thick and tough, is there anything I can do to save my chards?
