    That has nothing to do with it. If someone loves beet greens, it's
    not a given that they will love chard. BTDT - took me literally
    DECADES to even "like" chard.

    Perking up.... I didn't know flowering kale was edible! Ad isn't
    talking about the differences between green chard and colored chard,
    s/he is talking about the difference between beet greens and chard.

    Yes, a very sensitive subject, apparently.

    So according to you, nobody can distinguish the tastes of different
    melons.. or apples, beans, tomatoes....

    Maybe you're just a lousy cook?

    If I'm certain it has not been sprayed for bugs I'll pull a leave and
    munch. Doesn't happen often but the flavor is very much like regular
    green kale from the grocery store.

    Ad was trying to convince us that they are the same plant, but Ad has also
    gradually walked it back after repeatedly insisting it was so.

    As I was explaining my idea about the similarity of chard and beet
    greens I was told the following by "Nunya Bidnits" aka MartyB:

    "You're probably a life-deprived desperate troll."

    "Apparently Ad is short for ad hominem. It's the signature tactic of
    fools and trolls. I figure you for both."

    "I'm getting a distinct stench of troll."

    "FOAD, troll." (I had to look FOAD up, but apparently it's short for
    **** Off And Die.)

    Ever since that conversation, I've been wondering who of us was the
    unreasonable one

    To be perfectly honest, I took you for a troll on your first post...
    but since then, I've been wondering who you are/were. You're too
    experienced with usenet posting not to have a background here or some
    other high traffic (verbal) newsgroup and I've decided that I like
    you. No reason for it. Maybe you came here originally to troll, but
    I don't think that's why you're staying. If I'm right, it's happened
    before - so no shame in that.

    Thanks! I didn't mean to troll, but I underestimated the touchy nature

    I just returned from our local farmer's market, and bought a beautiful
    bunch of small beets- I love the greens. Right next to them was swiss
    chard, which I thought was beet greens at first glance. I bought them
    both, but undecided if I should cook both greens together. I usually
    just have them with a nice vinegar, but I know my mom gas a recipe for
    a chard salad...

    Botanically there is no difference between chard and beet, they are a
    variety of the same plant, just as there are many varieties of chard
    and beet, with some varieties having both leaf and small edible root
    (there is no way to draw the line). Cooked there is no way to taste
    the difference between beet tops and chard... in fact it doesn't even
    need to be cooked, just remove the root section from both and side by
    side you cannot tell which is which. I've grown both chard and beets
    and while in the ground no one can tell which is which, best one can
    do is guess. In fact their seeds look exactly alike, and once I
    planted chard seeds and beets grew... seeds very often get switched in
    the packaging, happens very often with squash seeds. Botanically
    there is no difference between green zucchini and yellow zuchinni, and
    blindfolded no one can taste the difference. Some varieties of beet
    and chard are grown primarilly for their stems. I know how to grow
    beets so that they produce a mass of leaves and practically no root,
    can do the same with turnips.

    Thank you, and you are right about them being identical as they both
    have red stems. I tried to grow beets here last year, but we just
    don't get enough sun.

    I posted a recipe last week that calls for both beets and chard (must
    have been a different thread). Here it is again:

    Roasted Beets and Red Chard Greens
    http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/reci...ipe/index.html
    Recipe courtesy Chuck Hughes
    Show: Chuck's Day Off Episode: The Landlords

    There are also lots of warm salads that call for roasted beets and
    chard on the net.

    Thanks, but I plan on cooking them separately- greens with vinegar and
    the beets with butter, s, and p. I only recently decided to try beets
    again as I had bad childhood memories of them, and discovered I kinda
    like them!

    Then where is the red beet root in the soil under your chard?

    They aren't the same plant!

    Sheesh!
