My rhubarb seems to be doing well, except for some red dots on the leaves ... what are the red dots?
The stalks seem fine.
I wanted to know if it is alright to harvest the stalks.
The red spots on the leaves of the rhubarb plant are a leaf spot, most likely caused by a fungus.
Depending on the type of fungus, it does not usually affect the quality of the stalks, but rather is an aesthetic problem for the leaves.

YES, by all means I would harvest the rhubarb if the stalks do not show signs of fungus ... and ENJOY!
