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.
