Swiss Chard

My Swiss Chard in my garden has Cercospora Leaf Spot. Is it ok to eat?

Hi, Carmen -

It's not going to make you sick, if that's what you mean. But the leaves might not taste very good.

I would pick off the leaves that are affected and compost them rather than try to eat them.

I hope this answers your question. If you have further questions about Cercospora Leaf Spot on your Swiss chard, please reply to this post with them. If you have other questions about Swiss chard, go ahead and make a new post.

Anyone have any tips or advice for Carmen?
