Rhubarb is a very unique popular home grown vegetable (a leaf
stalk) that is most often used in desserts.
That's right Rhubarb is a vegetable not a fruit. Rhubarb is cultivated
for its delicious, pink or green stems. It is very hardy, frost resistant
and appears in the garden every year
starting in spring.
Rhubarb is extremely easy to grow and even the smallest garden
can accommodate Rhubarb plants. You will be provided with tasty,
versatile rhubarb to create many amazing rhubarb dishes for
breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A "no care" easy garden plant that will provide you with years
of great harvest.
plant with morning sun afternoon shade. In the heat of the
summer the rhubarb will grow slowly. When fall comes and
cooler temperatures they take off growing fast.
In Northern states plant full sun or other.
Rhubarb can tolerate most soils but grows best in fertile
well - drained soils that are high in organic matter. A clean
planting site is essential for the cultivations of Rhubarb.
Rhubarb can be grown in acidic soils down to about pH 5.0
but grows best in slightly acidic soil - pH 6.0 - 6.8. It is
important and well worth the effort to prepare your soil
adequately keeping in mind that the Rhubarb will be there
about 15 years. The goal is that the soil be very fertile with
lots rotted manure or compost. Old compost is important
as fresh compost will cause "hook worms".
Harvest First Year:
During the first year of planting Rhubarb plants for
sale, the stalks should not be picked, since food from
the leaves is needed to nourish the roots for the next
year's growth. One light picking may be taken during
the year following planting if the Rhubarb plants are
vigorous. The beginning the second year following
planting, the entire plant may be harvested.
When harvesting Rhubarb:
1. Harvest Rhubarb from April onwards.
2. Pull the stalks rather than cut them. You'll find they
detach easily without leaving a stump to rot.
3. Discard the leaves as they are poisonous.
4. Leave about 3 of the older stalks on the Rhubarb
plant. Keep pulling the younger ones. Rhubarb stalks
of a plant may be harvested at one time, or pulled out
selectively over a 4-6 week period.
Same great flavor.
