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

good strong crowns,

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).

Hi Roger Yes but they need a lot of soil and plenty of good compost to do well in a smaller space Niall Quickcrop

Hi Tina To be honest most people stop around July as they feel it gets way to tart after that time. However my wife still takes our Rhubarb up until August Niall Quickcrop

Hello Please can you tell me when I'd be able to order a Glaskins Perpetual rhubarb crown from you? Would it be possible to put one on back order or I wonder if you'd be able to email me when they're in stock? Thank you!

Hi Louise. Rhubard won't be in stock again until the Autumn/Winter as crowns are sold when they are in their dormant period. Please check back on the site in mid October.
