Canadian Red Rhubarb produces long, thick stalks that have a dark red color with a light interior. Cooks up to a nice strawberry-red colored sauce. Its natural sweetness requires less sugar than most varieties. A fine northern variety developed in Winnipeg, Canada.
Rhubarb should be planted in the spring when the soil is tillable. Frost will not kill it. Don't harvest the first year from planting. The second year, harvest a few stalks but leave most for the development of your roots. By the third year, you can harvest at will during the spring from your first surge of stalks.
