Canada Red Rhubarb

Rhubarb

Description: One of the sweetest varieties of red rhubarb with shorter more slender, cherry-red stalks. Canada Red works especially well in desserts because of the high sugar content.

Rhubarb Growing Tips: Rhubarbs need an open, sunny site with moist, but free-draining soil. Avoid frost pockets as the stems are susceptible to frost. Do not harvest during the first year after planting as this will reduce the vigour. Once planted, it should not be moved and appreciates a generous annual mulch of well-rotted compost or manure.
