Hi, I am concerned that my rhubarb is very prolific (leaves and stalks) however it has not turned red - it remains green. The name on it is "rhubarb - tasmanian grown". Looking forward to hearing from someone. Thx....Lesley

Rhubarb will grow all the year round? ex farmworker from the early 50s in UK. Would like someone to put me in touch with Jerrod Nichols or Rod Harker of Tasmania, Rhubarb growers.

Hi Lesley, It is probably a green rhubarb, I have one and it is lovely to eat but doesn't turn red. If you prefer red rhubarb you need to purchase a red rhubarb comb. Cheers, Stewart.
