We have 5 different types of Rhubarb. Huge red stems with massive leaves. We brought the crowns from the Diggers Club and this is their first year of fruiting. Its amazing how you can eat the stalks but that the leaves are poisonous. I wonder whoever worked that out first.! I stewed some up, made a crumble, a syrup and am trying for the first time Rhubarb Champagne. The recipe is from a new Permaculture magazine called Pip Australian Permaculture.
