KangaRhu™ Rhubarb

Cooks up Brilliant Red

  • Deepest red stalks of any rhubarb
  • Heat tolerant
  • Cold hardy
  • Produces from spring to late summer
  • Taste-test winner

We'll go to the ends of the earth to find the best fruits and vegetables for home gardeners. In this case, we traveled over 9,000 miles to Australia to find heat tolerant rhubarb. We brought back seeds for our rhubarb breeding program. Our goal? To develop a heat tolerant, flavorful, deep red rhubarb.

After almost a decade of research, we've done it! KangaRhu is a breeding breakthrough in its heat performance, flavor and pigment. Its stalks are the deepest and darkest red of any rhubarb, and they cook up brilliant red—without hints of green or pink that you'll find in other rhubarb. Its wonderful cooked flavor made it a hands-down winner in our trials. As for its garden performance? We were still harvesting KangaRhu in our Ohio test gardens in mid-July when other varieties had bolted, browned out or just died down. Zone 4-8
