Rhubarb - Glaskins Perpetual – 20 Heirloom Seeds
** Do not eat the leaves as they contain poisonous oxalic acid. **
This English heirloom variety was bred for early maturity and a long harvest window. Glaskin's Perpetual Rhubarb is tart, but never bitter due to its naturally low oxalic acid content. If it is given a good early start indoors, it can be harvested (late) during the first season's growth.
Some leaves should be left unharvested to encourage good root growth and a strong return the following summer.
The thick, succulent stems grow 30-35cm long, with a primarily pink and green pigment and some red markings. This is the best rhubarb variety for harvesting later in the year.
Grow it in full sun, in rich, fertile, well-drained soil. Perennial plant with bright red stems, quick growing - can be harvested after the first year.
