Rhubarb Canada Red 3L Pot by Primrose & Sons

One of the sweetest varieties of red rhubarb. It often produces shorter, more slender stalks than other varieties but is tender and very sweet with a cherry-red colour all the way through. The stalkes are high in sugar and juicy with no need to peel. Very easy to grow - trouble free!

Caring and Maintenance

Water around 1 inch a week. Remove any weeds or rocks and place mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter.

Planting

Plant in well-draining soil using the planting distance specified in the characteristics above.

Some shade can be tolerated but more fruit will be produced at a sunny site.

Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball, place plant in ensuring the crown is level with the ground. Backfill with soil and firm well before watering. Mulch for best results.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
