Heirloom Rhubarb 'Prince Albert'

Rhubarb Prince Albert
A grand old heirloom variety of more than 100 years standing. This early season variety is also known as Royal Albert or Early Albert. The sticks can be pulled from early April outdoors during normal season, are large and fleshy, juicy and pale pink. They retain a gorgeous champagne pink colouring when cooked and are very sweet – one of the very best flavours to be found in Rhubarb. A hardy, robust grower, suitable for all purposes. Plant 5’ apart. Suitable for forcing either outdoors with an upturned bin or large bucket, or with gentle heat.
