This is a great vegetable to grow and then stew with apples. Rhubarb is a perennial plant, and if you look after it, it will continue to grow and provide flavoursome stalks for many years.

Rhubarb needs to be planted in full sun and it can be grown from seed or from the crowns of existing rhubarb stalks. Rhubarb needs well-drained, fertile soil and regular watering.
