If you like sweet and tart, rhubarb is sure to be a favorite dish. Crimson Red Rhubarb is an attractive perennial plant with large green leaves and brilliant crimson-red stalks. Once the 24 inch tall plants are established, they produce ample quantities of thick stalks that are perfect for the classic rhubarb dish: strawberry-rhubarb pie.

Crimson Red rhubarb isn't just for pie. Its tart flavor is a perfect counterpoint to sweet cherries or blueberries in cobblers or tarts. You can also make jam using the traditional strawberry-rhubarb combination. Rhubarb's unique flavor also goes well with savory fare. Add your favorite spices to cooked rhubarb and use it as a glaze for pork or lamb. Bring sweet and tart to your table with the intense flavor of Crimson Red rhubarb.

Careful pet owners! Rhubarb has leaves and roots that contain oxalic acid which is poisonous.

I love it and it is growing very well so far but you have to keep in mind that you can`t harvest it the first year like most rhubarb
