Glaskins Perpetual Rhubarb

         
 
5 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This English heirloom has for generations enjoyed a well-deserved place in American gardens. The thick stalks are bitter-free, deep red at the base and shading to green toward the leaf. Started indoors very early, a light harvest is possible the first year with heavy yields each year thereafter. Hardy throughout the continental U.S. but prefers areas with cooler summer weather.

Review:

On January 24th, I started these seeds in six 4" Cowpots, with 2 seeds per pot. Five of the pots had both seeds germinate, and the sixth pot had one seed germinate - that is a 90% germination rate. The seedlings are growing very fast, and have already been thinned to 1 plant per pot. Plan to transplant these into the garden in mid-April, and they should be 5" to 6" tall by then. Looking forward to seeing the growth of these through the year, and hopefully be ready for harvest next summer. Have only grown Victoria rhubarb before, so this will be a new variety for us.

Review:

I planted these in large pots in organic potting soil near my porch so they would get watered daily. They grew very well and transplanted well. They went through the winter will no problem. I picked some rhubarb the first year, but the growth has been so incredible the second year I have had to give a great deal away. I NEED to harvest about every three weeks. I have blanched some and dried it out for use in the winter. It is for the most part green and certainly less tart than the red stemmed variety, so less sugar is needed. It is tasty. Zone 7a.

Review:

This is a great plant! Sadly I've yet to taste it these past 2 years as its been too small to use it in any recipes. But that's my fault. It doesn't get a lot of sun and has been in a pot. But I bet it tastes wonderful! It has come back strong every year, and when I started them in seed pods much to my surprise every single seed germinated. All. Of. Them. 100% germination! Maybe I'm just lucky though! But it comes back every year, and the colors are beautiful and the leafs massive! I'm going to try and see if I can't get enough stalks to make a rhubarb curd! The red/green stalks are beautiful and its fun watching new ones grow in!

Review:

Started 3 plants from seeds this year after not being able to locate a plant to divide from. Plants were started inside in late March and set out (zone 7b) in mid-April. In mid-July all 3 plants are about 18" tall and wide with stalks about like Swiss Chard. Stalks are green with no red coloring right now, but I'm anticipating good things from them next year and in the years following.

Review:

I grow both Victoria and Glaskins. I live in the desert but grow them under almost total shade and they get huge. They also bear for longer. I personally like the Glaskins better than Victoria. They were very easy to start from seed and grew like weeds. I grew them in pots with just coir the first year then transplanted them the following spring before they started growth. Mine are almost entirely green with just a little red at the root area.
