Glaskin's Perpetual Rhubarb

Pleasingly Tart, Never Bitter!

  • Ideal for late-season harvesting
  • Fast growing and reliable
  • Very good yields
You'll enjoy fantastic yields of this reliable rhubarb that cooks up nicely and never gets bitter. A traditional favorite in pies, tarts, jams or fermented for wine, this old-fashioned staple is fast growing and reliable. Glaskin's Perpetual is perfect for late-season harvesting due to its low concentration of oxalic acid. So, you'll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor well into the summer or winter, depending on when you plant. Self-pollinating. Hardy in zones 3-8.
