August - January I Norfolk, UK
Until recently, rainbow chard was a relatively unknown winter vegetable, rarely seen outside of home kitchens. With a similar flavour profile to beetroot leaves, its earthy notes are counterbalanced by a natural sweetness. Grown in open fields, Natoora's Rainbow Chard comes to them from a small-scale farmer on the Norfolk-Cambridge border. The grower's refusal to use any chemical fertilisers means that his plants grow at an entirely natural rate, developing crisp stalks and brightly-coloured, meaty leaves.
