Rhubarb Facts

Rhubarb [ROO-bahrb] The thick, celery-like stalks of this buckwheat family member can reach up to two feet long. The stalks are the only edible part of the plant. The leaves contain OXALIC ACID and can therefore be toxic. Though rhubarb is eaten as a fruit, it’s botanically a vegetable. Rhubarb falls into two basic groups; Hothouse grown and Field-Grown or your back-yard variety. Hothouse rhubarb is available from December to March and field-grown is available from March through October with the peak season being from April to June. Rhubarb is highly perishable so it’s best to refrigerate, tightly wrapped, in a plastic bag for up to 3 days.
