There are many different Rhubarb Varieties or cultivars available for the home gardener.
What variety of rhubarb should you buy?
One of the most marked difference between cultivars is the stalk colour which can range from red to green. Pink varieties and speckled varieties are also available.
Most gardeners prefer the deep red petiole, but these rhubarb plants are often less productive than the greener varieties.
Consumers often assume that the redder stem varieties are sweeter than the greener stalk varieties, however there is little, if any correlation between colour and sweetness.
Some varieties of rhubarb will thrive better in certain geographical locations. Garden centers will usually sell rhubarb varieties that are best suited to the climate conditions of the local area.
