How Long to Pick Rhubarb?

Filed under: fruit — Tags: — TopVeg @ 1:55 pm

Rhubarb is really a spring crop. When the stalks are no longer fat and
juicy, but grow as thin stalks, the time has come to give it a rest.

Rhubarb can be pulled all summer if it is growing vigorously, and if at
least 25% of the stalks are left on the plant.

The rhubarb plant should be kept weed free, so that it can grow and feed
its roots. All damaged and discoloured leaves should be removed with
their stalks.

In the autumn, rhubarb appreciates a good covering of well rotted farm
yard manure.
