This silverbeet is amazing. Not only was it planted last spring and is still going strong (been eating it all year), the colours look fantastic in the garden and very impressive on the dinner plate when you pick a good mix of coloured leaves. Tastes great just steamed and works well in stir frys and my fave is sauteed in garlic olive oil with an egg broken through! Yum!
