Rhubarb Glaskin Perpetual

Availability: In Stock
sku # 84993
We ship this item in Spring at the proper planting time for your hardiness zone.

Sweeter flavour and plenty of it!
Enjoy tasty rhubarb pies, jams, wine, and more with this high-yielding variety. Glaskin's Perpetual is a heavy producer of sweet, vibrant red stalks over a long harvest season. From April to October, it offers up its juicy, somewhat shorter stems for you to process into your favourite dishes. Its moderate height leads to a sweeter flavour than many other varieties. Plus, a low concentration of oxalic acid makes Glaskin's Perpetual a healthier option than some others on the market.
