(Pronounced ROO-bahrb)

Although generally eaten as a fruit, Rhubarb is a vegetable. Melissa’s offers two basic types of Rhubarb: hothouse and field grown. Look for hothouse Rhubarb to have pink to pale pink stalks, while field grown Rhubarb characteristically has cherry-red stalks.

Rhubarb is naturally very tart, and is generally combined with a considerable amount of sugar. Rhubarb is best known for its combination with strawberries to make pie and other desserts.

Look for crisp stalks with good color. The leaves should be fresh looking and free of blemishes. Fresh Rhubarb is highly perishable and should be refrigerated. Wrap tightly in a plastic bag for up to 5 days. Wash and remove leaves just prior to use. Freezing is not recommended.

This item is perishable and must ship Overnight.

Any orders that do not have the appropriate shipping method selected will not be shipped out. For assistance, please call us at 800-588-0151.
