Description

A bearer of earlier stalk harvests, Valentine Rhubarb is a vigorous plant with high yields, with few or no seed stalks. Valentine is a sweet, low-acid variety perfect for zesty sauces and pies that require less sugar. Cold hardy and heat tolerant. Harvest in May.

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.
