Doesn’t it have a list? That should help narrow it down a bit

If it isn’t spinach I’d still treat it as - either eat fresh in salads, in soups or casseroles, or wilt down with butter and garlic.

The message in the box says it's calabrese but I googled that and it doesn't look like it
I hope it is spinach but really not convinced

I’m thinking chard too

It’s chard

BusterGonad Fri 15-May-20 13:04:03

I'm guessing chard too.

It's chard. Lovely with scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Looks like a young ruby chard.

Calabrese is broccoli, it's not calabrese. That stem looks more like chard than spinach but you use them in similar ways anyway.

Calabrese is broccoli isn't it?

Thank you I'm going with chard and am gonna use it instead of spinach in a sweet potato rogan josh!
Hoping for the best

Vote for spinach.

ednclouda Fri 15-May-20 13:09:30

I also thought chard or spinach

Sexnotgender Fri 15-May-20 13:11:46

I’d say spinach.

Ninkanink Fri 15-May-20 13:13:22

It’ll be perfect in a curry.

poppet31 Fri 15-May-20 13:13:24

Chard. Spinach wouldn't have the pink root.

therobin Fri 15-May-20 13:14:17

Another vote for chard.

bluefoxmug Fri 15-May-20 13:16:45

chard or spinach
they both cook & eat very similar. would definitly be great in a curry.

Samtsirch Fri 15-May-20 13:18:12

I think ruby chard too.

midlifecrash Fri 15-May-20 13:20:32

It's spinach. Spinach does have pink roots. It looks lovely and fresh

I thought spinach. Yum. Wilt it down with some onion and tomatoes and then fry an egg in it with a bit of salt and paprika on top. Yum
