The chard plant is commonly referred to as Swiss chard in the U.S. because Switzerland used to be a large producer of the plant, but in recent years, production has spread around the world. In Australia, they call it silver beet. Around the world, it is also known as spinach beet, Sicilian beet, leaf beet, Chilian beet, sea kale beet, white beet, strawberry spinach, and Roman kale.
