Red Silverbeet

Auckland Botanic Gardens have a veggie garden. That’s where I noticed this appetizing red chard, highlighted by the sun. Haven’t eaten silverbeet in yonks, maybe I should try, especially in such enticing colour.


  1. Color at it’s best. Fantastic structures.

  2. As well as being such a vibrant colour, it looks crunchy too, makes a great image you I might have to try one soon too. The power of suggestion haha!!

  3. I’m a city girl and had to google silverbeet. While I’m not familiar with this vegetable, I am in love with the color. Thanks for visiting my site and leaving a comment.
