There are o so many ways to enjoy rhubarb- just don't eat the leaves. 'Victoria' has enjoyed popularity since, yes, Queen Victoria. Red stems are slightly sweet, but a garden staple. Long-lived plants benefit from adding manure to the bed each spring. Never pull more than 25% of the leaf stalks if you want more next year. Pie, punch, crisp, squares, wine...or are you brave enough to eat it raw?
