Just wanted to thank you for the prompt delivery of my fruit trees - beautifully packed - they are planted and getting used to their new home and they had an afternoon of gentle rain to say welcome! Thank you and I hope to visit you again soon.

Cropping from spring into summer, this high-yielding variety produces long stalks of excellent quality that have a lovely sweet flavour and good texture - and don't tend to be 'stringy'! Great for making crumble!

A reliable old variety that was reputedly named after Queen Victoria.

It performs well whether cut young as baby rhubarb, forced, or just left to get on with it!

  • Prefers a rich but well drained soil.
  • Plant any time of year, spacing plants 3 x 3 feet (90 x 90 cm) apart.
  • Keep weed free and water well in dry spells.
  • Avoid harvesting in the first year and only lightly in the second.
  • Harvest by grasping at the base of the stalk and tearing away from the clump.
  • When growth dies down in the autumn generously mulch the crown with well rotted manure or similar.

Forcing

  • Forcing rhubarb results in an earlier crop that is sweeter and more tender (though with a smaller overall yield).
  • To force Rhubarb, shortly after Christmas cover the crowns with a light-excluding container with a removable lid. To ensure light is fully excluded you can pile up organic matter or similar around the base.
  • Periodically remove the lid from your container and check for shoots, removing the stalks when large enough.
  • After approximately mid-April, uncover the crowns and allow them to grow away in the normal way, though avoid cropping from a forced crown for a year or two in order to allow it to recover.
