One of the most popoular varieties available. This variety is also widely grown commercially. Rhubarb can be harvested from the first year and will benefit from mixing in a rich manure when planting and yearly thereafter. Soils need to be free draining so in heavier soils add plenty of grit and or humus to aid drainage. Cultivate soils to a depth of 30cms as the loose soil will allow them to establish much quicker.Plant so the crown is just below the soil surface.
Aspect. Semi to full sun.
Soil type. Free draining soils. Keep soils well fertilised each year.
Harvest: March onwards
