Glaskins Perpetual Rhubarb
Heavy Yielding and Delicious Green Stemmed Heirloom Rhubarb
This heirloom strain from the U.K. has been one of the most productive seed grown varieties partly due to its green stems and ability to grow in warmer climates. Heavy producer of tender petioles starts early in the season producing long into the season. You can grow it from seed or cuttings. The perpetual part of the name comes from its ability to produce in early summer and again in the fall. This is a mix of both green and red stems, but primarily this is a green small stemed selection perfect for rhubarb pie. For those who know rhubarb, this selection is considered one of the best in the flavor department without being over the top in sourness. Small seedlings going into their 2nd and 3rd year are now offered grown in pots.
