Rhubarb - Victoria Organic
The greenish-red stalks on this organic, heirloom variety have a slight taste of red wine, without being tough or stringy - delicious in pies and cobblers.
The usable stalks are 25-30cm (10-12") long, under dark green, ruffled leaves.
Easy to grow from seed.
Sow in April, but wait 12-18 months before harvesting.
After that, the stalks can be picked from February to April each year.
Choose a sunny site.
Please note that the leaves of all rhubarb plants are slightly toxic, and will produce stomach upsets if eaten.
Many organic growers wrap full grown leaves around the stems of other vegetables to deter caterpillars and other insects.
Matures in 12-18 months.
