Particularly reliable and easy to grow, Red Champagne Rhubarb is ideal for forcing, producing long, slender, pink-tinged stalks with a deliciously sweet taste.

An old and well trusted variety, it is ideal for fertile, well-drained areas of the vegetable garden or allotment and, once planted, should not be moved. Plant the crown so that the top is just level with the surface of the soil. Plant firmly, treading the soil around the roots. Water well and keep the soil moist during the growing season.

Harvest ideally from April to June but do not pull any stems for the first season to allow the plant to become established. Only pulling a few in the second season will be beneficial to the plant. Always cease pulling at the end of July to allow the plant to build up its strength again. Freshly pulled stems should be used within a day or two.
