Long, bright, red-based sticks that average 60cm long with a delicious, sweet flavour. This is the most popular early deciduous variety in the UK that's often ready for harvesting as early as February outdoors. It's an excellent, succulent rhubarb that's good for outdoor production and excellent for forcing in winter.
The poisonous leaves must not be ingested but make a useful addition to the compost heap. A lovely, easy-to-grow and long-lived ornamental fruit that produces a medium to heavy crop.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
