Sometimes referred to as a stem vegetable, rhubarb is the earliest fruit to crop in the garden, especially if forced, and also makes a large ornamental plant that looks dramatic in a border or beside water. The long juicy leaf stalks, known as sticks, are the parts eaten, varying between the pale greenish-pink of forced supplies and the deep red of maincrop varieties. Plants need plenty of humus in the ground, with annual dressings of manure or compost to feed their lush growth. Divide crowns when they are too large or sticks become thin.
