I'm talking about the stuff with the dark green leaf and the wide
white stem. Occasionally I've seen Red Silverbeet in the shops, the
same stuff but with a red stem.
Now I've managed to grow some Red Silverbeet myself. The problem is I
never planted it (all my silver beet is self seedled from last
season's crop) and I have never bought any (so it could not have got
into my garden via any self made compost). My question is, how did I
manage to grow it? Or is 'Red' not a different species? Could
there be something in the soil that has turned the silverbeet stalks
