Rhubarb – Victoria
Rhubarb ‘Victoria’ is an oldie but goodie. The hardy, high-yielding perennial has green stalks, flushed with red. It is known for its lovely, sweet flavour and good texture. Not too stringy!
Rhubarb is an irregular clump-forming plant that is easy to grow and that will spread after two (2) – five (5) years, so plant in an open moist, well-drained area of the garden in a sunny spot. Once planted, rhubarb should not be moved. Rhubarb stems are boiled as a dessert and added to other fruits, pies, crumbles salads and flavouring for food and drinks. Leaves are poisonous so dispose of carefully.
