Victoria’ Rhubarb

Rheum rharbarum 'Victoria'

Has large, medium-green leaves which are toxic to eat, but its brilliant pink to red edible stalks are perfect in pies and tarts in late Spring/early Summer. You can freeze the stalks to enjoy rhubarb longer. Make sure not to harvest the first year so it can get established, and thereafter only harvest a third of its leaf stalks annually so that it can persist for several years to come.
