The Thompson family have been growing this variety of rhubarb for three generations spanning 80 years. Each year they have selected the very earliest shooting crowns and planted them to expand their commercial growing of rhubarb. This selection process has been so successful that they have pulled outdoor rhubarb in late December! The stems are a lovely red and there is good vigour and stem thickness.
Our chosen varieties are freshly dug and supplied as hand graded, large, divided crowns ready for immediate planting. Delivered as bare rooted plants.
