Don't expect ruby red stalks on this highly sought after variety of rhubarb - most will be green with a blush of red near the base.

In spite of the fact that rhubarb needs well-draining soil and is susceptible to crown rot, it does surprisingly well in the Pacific NW. 'Victoria' produces vigorous, mostly green stalks that can grow up to two feet tall and three to four feet across over time. Rhubarb needs lots of sun, regular water, and fertilizing twice during the growing season. Large stalks may be harvested throughout the summer, and they freeze well. A favorite for pies and jams, rhubarb stalks are extremely tart and require a fair amount of sweetener. The leaves are highly toxic, so throw those into the compost pile.
