A nutritious perennial herb with stout, fleshy edible stalks in a brilliant ruby red. The large leaves are beautiful but shouldn t be eaten as they contain high concentrations of oxalic acid which is poisonous. Plant in a sunny position or semi-shade. Rhubarb can be grown in the ground or in a container and tolerates cool climates. Can be stewed for desserts, used in pies, crumbles, fools and jams, and it also pairs very well with orange. Growing tip: For best results plant 90 centimetres apart.
