Why use a Rhubarb Forcer?
Rhubarb is much more palatable when it is forced. This is a simple process which will bring the plant on quickly whilst depriving it of light. To use, simply place the Rhubarb Forcers over the crown of your rhubarb plants and make sure the lid is firmly in place.
As a general rule of thumb, you’ll be able to look forward to edible rhubarb after approximately eight weeks. The trapped heat will accelerate growth and the lack of light will create slender, tasty stems. If you live in a colder part of the country, this is also a good way to ensure a crop up to a month earlier than usual.
These terracotta forcers are available with either a 32 or 38cm diameter.
