Victoria Organic rhubarb seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! The greenish-red stalks of this heirloom variety have a slight flavour of red wine, and are never tough or stringy. Victoria is delicious in pies and cobblers. The stalks are 25-30cm (10-12") long, under dark green, ruffled leaves. Sow in April, but wait 12-18 months before harvesting. After that, the stalks can be picked as needed from February to April each year. Choose a sunny site, and divide every four years. Rhubarb is perfect for the permaculture vegetable garden that focuses on perennial plants that can be harvested over many years.
An essential addition to the perennial vegetable bed, rhubarb will produce year after year, and it’s easy to grow from seed. Just be patient for the first year and a half after sowing, as plants need to become established prior to harvest.
