Cultivation & harvest
Rhubarb is just right in sunny to semi-shady locations. Moist, humus- and nutrient-rich alluvial soils favor the growth of the aromatic rhubarb.
Rhubarb is fruity and sour in flavour and is ideal for making sweet dishes, juices and compote.
Rhubarb keeps for around three days in a cool place.
