Grow your own rhubarb and within 2 years you'll be harvesting the stems by the armful! Early varieties can be forced (grown in darkness under a large pot or rhubarb forcer) or left to grow 'naturally'. Try to resist the urge to pick all the stems in the first year, so that the plants can become properly established.
Rhubarb 'Victoria' (Autumn Planting)
Rheum x hybridum
The greenish-pink stems of Rhubarb ‘Victoria’ have tender flesh with an excellent balance of sweetness and acidity. Once established, this popular, traditional variety will produce a heavy crop, year after year. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 120cm (48”).
These budded pieces, taken from established crowns will quickly mature, resulting in crowns big enough to harvest from 2 years after planting.
