Description

A reliable and easy heritage variety that’s one of the earliest to fruit and excellent for forcing. It’s deliciously sweet, lovely in puddings and for cordials.

Care Tips

Don't harvest anything in the first season. Simply allow the sticks of rhubarb to die back in the first autumn. Spread organic compost around the crown in its dormant winter phase.
