Prolific green stalks with a red blush. The best cooking rhubarb, bar none. Noticeably sweeter and milder the all others. Stalks are slender and very tender, so it’s quick and easy to fix for the pot. Plants are prolific; stalks green with red blush. Dust off your pie tins for this one. Bare roots are great for early spring planting. Rooted plants are best in fall, planted upon receipt, 4-6 weeks before first fall frost.
