The Q&A Archives: Rhubarb

Question: I'm interested in knowing about the Canadian red cultivar of rhubarb: growing conditions, description.

Answer: 'Canada Red' produces long, thick stalks with a dark red color outside and a lighter interior. It cooks up to a strawberry-red sauce. It tends to be sweeter than other varieties and may require less sugar in cooking.<br><br>Prepare the soil for your rhubarb patch by mixing in some organic matter like compost or well-rotted manure. Rhubarb likes full sun though it can tolerate less. Plant in a spot that receives at least 4 hours of direct sun.
