Description

This is a standard crop variety of Rhubarb. One of the largest and most productive varieties. The stalks are a deep crimson red with a touch of green on the inside. The taste has a bit of a wine flavor to it. First recorded in 1837 in England. Many people don't know Rhubarb is a perennial! While you have to wait until the second year to really start to harvest, after that you will be rewarded with rhubarb for years to come!

Sowing:

About two months before the last expected spring frost, start the rhubarb seeds indoors. Soak them for several hours then plant two seeds per peat pot; keep them warm until germination, then clip off the weaker seedling. When the outdoor temperature reaches an average of 45 degrees F and no lower than 32 degrees F at night, transplant the seedlings. Plant them 3-4' apart in rich soil and full sun.

Growing:

Moisture is exceptionally important to developing rhubarb, since the stems have a high water content. Keep the soil moist and weeds controlled by mulching around the plants. When flowers appear, remove them to concentrate the plant's energy and growth on the stalks.

Harvesting:

Avoid harvesting rhubarb in its first year of growth, to allow the plant to develop full strength and maturity. Harvest lightly in the second year and fully in the third year. To harvest the stalks, grip the stalk near its base and give it a twisting pull. Removing the entire stalk rather than cutting it actually allows for new stalks, increasing production; this method also prevents rot and disease from developing. Keep in mind that the leaves of rhubarb are mildly poisonous.

Seed Saving:

Rhubarb readily produces seed on stalks that are left to mature. Harvesting some of the stalks on the plant will not harm the development of the seeds. When the seed heads grow dry and brown, remove them before they shatter; the seeds are very light and fly away easily. Remove the seeds from the stalk and spread them out in a protected place until they have completely dried. Store the seeds in a cool, dry place.

Planted the seeds on 2/23 and 10 days later they sprouted! I think I planted 5 seeds and all 5 germinated. Can't wait to see the beautiful color on these! Also great communication and thank you for the extra gift seeds!
