Do you enjoy those bright red stems in early summer, but wish the season for sweet, young rhubarb could be longer? If so, you will want to grow Livingstone which produces its succulent, delicious, stringless sticks from March to October. This outstanding, British-bred strain was achieved by eliminating the summer dormancy which causes rhubarb to stop cropping by the middle of summer. By the way, this breakthrough came about by conventional means and not by any form of genetic modification.
Livingstone really does yield a fine crop of high quality, red-skinned stems through the autumn months, extending the season for this much-loved fruit (well, vegetable actually!).
The disease-free plants will crop heavily once established. Whether your favourite is rhubarb crumble, rhubarb pie or simply stewed and served with compulsory custard, Livingstone is the variety we have been waiting for. Supplied in 9cm pots.

Bought the three rhubarb plants and was very pleased with the way in which they were packed and the fast delivery.~~Plants still look good and fresh. Have bought from other companies and plants were sent second class resulting in plants being dead on arrival. Thank you D T Brown for restoring my faith in seed companies
