What are your favorite rhubarb recipes?


Have you wondered how long the season for rhubarb is going? Rhubarb rings the harvest time. The garden season usually starts with rhubarb in early April. From this point on, you can actually harvest the stalks uninterruptedly and create goodies from it. From 24 June (Midsummer), however, this should not be harvest anymore.

Why do you ask now? On the one hand the plant should have the possibility to regenerate up to the winter and from this time contain the stems increased oxalic acid which not everyone tolerates.


Would you like to plant rhubarb?

For this you have to calculate one to two years of start-up time, then you can harvest the first time. In the second year, you should only harvest until May, then you will be rewarded in the following year with a lush harvest.

Rhubarb a vegetable instead of a fruit

Did you know that the rhubarb belongs to the vegetable? In the stores you find it usually in the fruit section. However, when you look at the exact definition of vegetables and fruits, rhubarb belongs to vegetables. The use of rhubarb speaks rather for the assignment to fruit (compote, jam, cakes, juice) like this rhubarb meringue cake.
