Other names for this colorful and tasty type of Swiss Chard include Bright Lights and Five Color Silver Beet. Its ruby and golden stems and bold green leaves arch exuberantly toward the sun (when the sun is really bright it seems to penetrate these stems, making them glow). Consider planting in a spot where its ornamental value can be appreciated. It's easy to grow and tends to perform quite well even when slightly neglected.
One of the tastiest ways to prepare chard is to heat some oil over low heat in a tall pan, toss in some sesame seeds until toasted, and then toss in a mess of washed chard until it wilts. Add soy sauce and a little sweetener: so good!
