Yes, you can start rhubarb (Rheum rhabarbarum) from seed! Victoria rhubarb is a predominantly green stalked variety with blushes of the dark red we commonly associate with market varieties of the plant. A fast germinator with rapid growth after seeding. Stalks are sturdy and succulent with an unrivaled sweet sour flavor. Late winter/early spring seedlings will produce usable stalks by late summer/early fall. Vigorous production can be expected from second year plants. Root divisions to rapidly proliferate the crop are easily accomplished.
100 days from seed to first harvest. Perennial. Seeds are certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
