Rhubarb For Late Season Harvesting

Glaskins Perpetual Rhubarb was first grown in Brighton in the U.K. around 1920. The variety produces large long stemmed stalks bright red in colour which are juicy and hold their flavour well. The perfect rhubarb to grow for jams or baking in pies.

Glaskins perpetual is the only rhubarb suitable for late season harvesting as the oxalic acid remains low hence the name ‘perpetual’. Oxalic acid gives raw rhubarb a sharp taste and is also found in perpetual spinach and chard. Cooking will remove most of it but high levels can be unpleasant, it’s particularly high in rhubarb leaves which is why we don’t eat them and are viewed as poisonous.

Spacing 80 – 90 cm between plants, 1 m between rows.

Plant in rich soil in full sun.

Contains 1 crown of Rhubarb Glaskins Perpetual

The ordered Glaskins Perpetual crown arrived quickly, well packed and in excellent condition. Strong healthy crown started to grow right away and put out four leaves with beautiful dark red sturdy stems in a very short time. It is a beautiful plant and its shiny red stems always cheer me up in this really rainy spring of 2016. Glaskins Perpetual provides you with a good visual impact until ready for tasting, so one can only win having this perennial plant in the veggie garden or even in a flower bed. Highly recommend this rhubarb variety and Quickcrop as a company offering high quality products combined with high quality service. Thank you Quickcrop!

The rhubarb crowns appear to be fine although one could have been wrapped better (may have dried out a bit).
