Rhubarb: Rhubarb is a perennial vegetable that is commonly grown for its edible stalks, which have a distinctive tart flavor. It belongs to the same family as sorrel and buckwheat and is native to Asia, although it has been cultivated in Europe and North America for centuries. The stalks of rhubarb grow to be quite long and thick. They are typically harvested in the spring and early summer, before they become tough and stringy. Low-calorie yet rich in vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin K, vitamin C, and calcium, the stalks can be eaten raw or cooked, and are often used in desserts, such as pies and crisps, as well as in savory dishes like sauces and chutneys.

Growing Tips: Rhubarb is easier to grow in the garden. It prefers a cool climate and moist, well-draining soil, and should be planted in a spot that receives partial shade. With proper care, a rhubarb plant can produce stalks for many years, making it a great addition to any home garden.
