Rhubarb for sale in a 14 cm pot is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Rheum genus, and its leaves are commonly used in the kitchen to prepare desserts and preserves. Rhubarb has large leaves, usually green with a red or pink vein. The plant also produces fleshy stems that range from green to red, depending on the variety. Rhubarb is known for its hardiness and adaptability. It grows well in temperate climates and can be grown in gardens and vegetable gardens. Rhubarb plants require well-drained soil and are often planted in spring. The edible parts of the plant are its stems. The leaves, on the other hand, contain calcium oxalate and are toxic if consumed in large quantities, so they are not used in cooking.

Rhubarb stalks are often used in sweet preparations, such as cakes, tarts and jams. They have a sour taste and are often combined with sugar to balance the taste. Rhubarb is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K and minerals such as calcium and manganese. However, it is important to note that the nutritional content can vary depending on the variety and how it is prepared. Rhubarb stalks can be cooked or baked, usually with the addition of sugar to temper the acidity. Some people prefer to blanch rhubarb before using it in recipes to make it more tender. Rhubarb is often available in spring and early summer. Harvesting is generally done when the stems are large enough to be used in cooking.
