The one on the left is chard (probably rainbow swiss chard because there are different colours), the one on the right is a pointed cabbage

Chard, also known as Swiss Chard, Silverbeet, Perpetual Spinach, Crab Beet and Mangold. While the leaves are eaten, it is in the same species as the garden beet (beetroot), which is grown primarily for its edible roots. Chard is extremely perishable. Chard has shiny green ribbed leaves, with stems that range from white to yellow and red depending on the cultivar. It has a slightly bitter taste. Fresh young chard can be used raw in salads. Mature chard leaves and stalks are typically cooked or sauteed; the bitter flavor fades with cooking.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chard

Swiss chard and pointed cabbage I think.

But seriously. One on right looks like summer cabbage - shred for home made coleslaw. Yum!
#8
the cabbage is called "rocket" - I am growing those this year again - got lots of them ready now, the leaves could be chard as the prev poster says or perpetual or beet spinach - which is a variety of spinach that has leaves that look like beetroot leaves hence the name

Good luck with the chard, in my experience, it's a very acquired taste and texture!
#13
the cabbage on the right is more commonly known as "sweetheart" cabbage in these parts.
Tesco recently started selling it under that name as well.

Google for confirmation.

Wash it to get rid of any grit.
Wilt it like spinach in just the drops of water remaining on the leaves in a covered saucepan then toss it in a pan with a little olive oil that you have added slivers of garlic and a tiny amount of flaked chilli to.
Squeeze over the juice of half a lemon just before serving. Yum! :thumbsup:

I thought rocket was a type of lettuce. This looks nothing like the stuff Jamie Oilver raves about .

I hope not as rhubarb leaves are poisonous.

[COLOR="Purple"]Is this just a test? Abel and Cole always list the contents on the side of the box! For what it's worth, I think they're swiss chard and pointed cabbage![/COLOR]
