Delight™ Rhubarb

Rhubarb

Description: Delight™ is an everbearing Rhubarb making it possible to produce two crops per year. The sticks are very long with dark green to deep red stalks. A wonderful apple-fresh, sharp, slightly sweet flavour. Perfect for baking into crumbles, cakes and pies!

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.
