I don't remember rhubarb ever being this hard to grow!

5 years ago

I am growing Victoria rhubarb, but don't know when to pick it! It starts to form flower heads seemingly as soon as it starts growing. I pick them off as I've read to do. However, the stalks never turn red!

As a kid, my mom had a rhubarb plant (don't know the variety) which I never saw flower heads on! It also was red, literally ALL THE TIME. We harvested the whole summer!

I've had my plants 5 years and never harvested anything, because they stay pretty small and sparse and, what does show up, stays green.

Is this typical behavior for Victoria? Should I try another variety? I'm at a loss! :)
