Abstract

Chard, commonly referred to as Swiss chard, belongs to the same family as beets and spinach. Although its name suggests that it originated in Switzerland, chard is actually native to the Mediterranean region and is known to have first been grown in Sicily. The name, Swiss chard, originated because a Swiss scientist determined its scientific name.
