Rhubarb is a perennial vegetable that flourishes in most of the US, its red or green leafstalks growing up to 22.” Prized for its tart flavor that adds zest to pies, tarts, cold soups, and numerous other dishes, rhubarb is hardy and beautiful, with huge, lush green leaves and bright stalks (only the stalks are edible). Red varieties are the sweetest and therefore the most desired by gardeners and cooks. Rhubarb’s highest quality is in early spring, when the stalks should be crisp and fairly thick. Try this tasty veggie and enjoy the tangy flavor for years!
