(Perennial) This variety was offered in 1856. Thick stalks are popular for making delicious pies, cobblers and preserves. This variety can be harvested starting as soon as the second season. Rhubarb is very popular in Canada and the northern U.S. Do not eat the leaves as they contain poisonous oxalic acid.

What are the pros? high germination, lovely stalk

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I bought these seeds two years ago, and live on a balcony so they went in pots. Every seed germinated much to my shock (I was told they're hard to grow from seed) but the died due to a sudden trip I had to take. I grew them again this year (from the same package)sure that only a few would take--but they all did! Oops! I put them in pots and they've REALLY taken off given that the don't always get a lot of sun. But boy are they doing great! So lesson here is: You can grow rhubarb from seed, in pots, in southern california! Fear not balcony gardeners, it's possible to enjoy Rhubarb!

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? don't like high water table

Review:

I started growing rhubarb from seed when the rhubarb root/crowns I brought didn't last more than a year or 2 since the water table is too high. It is easy to start outside in a pot after it gets warm and break up and replant in the soil--just have to water and not let it dry up. It comes back in the spring and you don't have to worry about losing older plants. Very nice in jams.
