The most attractive of all leaf beets. Easy to grow, very vigorous, and in a variety of bright colours. Use as a salad garnish or cooked.
Add colour and interest to the garden, with its multi-coloured stems, but it also looks great on the plate or in a stir fry. I use the leaves like spinach and the stems as a separate veg in a gratin with cheese sauce and breadcrumbs on top.”
