Growing Rhubarb

15 Jul 17 Jan Quirk (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
A friend gave me a healthy looking bunch of rhubarb with leaves intact. I have heard that it is not good to eat the stems if they have had frost on them as the toxin is forced down the stalk from the leaf, is this true? Thank you
