Scientific Name: Rheum rhabarbarum
Category: Vegetables and Herbs
Rhubarb is a perennial crop grown for its red stalk that has an acid flavor. Rhubarb often is mixed with fruits in recipes. It is among the first vegetables ready for use in the spring. Because your planting may last a number of years, locate plants in full sun at the edge or end of the garden area to avoid damaging them with annual tillage.
