Description More Information
 
Victoria Rhubarb (1g):
Easily grown from seed, this variety of rhubarb is sweet and tender. The high quality stalks are long, and never tough or stringy. Rosy red color at the base, fading to green at the tip. Pull stalks from the dirt to harvest, rather than cutting. These plants give heavy yields and can live for 10-15 years!

Planting Instructions:
Plant Rhubarb Swiss Chard seeds in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Prepare the bed by turning soil to a depth of 8". Sow seeds about 6" apart and cover with 1/2" of soil in rows 18-24" apart. Thin to 8-12" apart when seedlings are 1-2" tall. Approximately 1" of rain is needed per week. Keep plants well-watered during dry periods to promote growth.

Harvesting:
Rhubarb Swiss Chard is ready to harvest in approximately 60 days when plants are 6-8" tall. To eat fresh, harvest leaves when they are 5-6" long, removing from the outer base. Cut off the outer leaves 1½" above the ground with a sharp knife. Plants that are harvested regularly will continue to produce new growth from the center of the plant. Both the leaves and stalks are edible raw, steamed or sautéed.

Saving Seeds:
Rhubarb Swiss Chard, like all chard, is a relatively new vegetable that is thought to have first been described in the mid-18th century. It is also known as silver beet, spinach beet, and even spinach in different parts of the world.

Rhubarb stalks green July 4, 2017
Reviewer: Mike from Syracuse, NY  
I started six rhubarb seeds in mid winter and transplanted them outside this spring. I had a 100% germination rate on all the seeds I planted including vegetables. They seem to be healthy and growing very fast. The only reason I'm rating 4 instead of 5 is because of the odd one. I'm not sure why one of the rhubarb plants stalk is all green instead of purple. Does this happen with Victoria rhubarb or is it something else?
