swiss chard

Swiss chard is a curious vegetable. Raw, it smells like rhubarb. It looks like rhubarb – though the stems are not as thick.

When cooked, it smells like spinach and the leaves taste like spinach too. But it has the same effect on your teeth as rhubarb!

Of course, the real question is why it is called Swiss chard… Not even Wikipedia provides that answer.
