What type of greens are these? It looks like a leafy green and it has a purple stalk.

Asked by RedPowerLady (12551points) July 4th, 2009

I got some greens at the farmer’s market donated for an event we are attending. I want to know what type of green they are. They have green leaves with a purple stalk. The edges of the green leaves are not rounded like spinach. Thank You.

P.S. I tried to google but with no results. I tried both regular and image search.

I actually have some beet greens and these look a bit different. The purple color is more faded and less bright. And the edges are a bit more wavy. Wavy is a bad descriptor but I can’t think of an accurate one.

Thank You.

Could they be rhubarb, in which case the leaves are poisonous?

I also have some rhubarb that was donated. Doesn’t look quite the same either. The leaves are an odder shade of green and still more wavy.

Are rhubarb leaves really poisonous?
