Product Description

Rhubarb can vary in appearance throughout the year with the UK outdoor crop starting in April and running through to the middle of October. The start of the outdoor rhubarb season in the UK is a big event, for while it's botanically a vegetable, it is really the first "fruit" of the British produce year. It grows in response to daylight, rather than heat, and the outdoor crop is a perennial so once established, we can get a crop year after year (some of the plants are over 30 years old).

The colour of rhubarb stalks vary from the commonly associated crimson red, through speckled light pink, to simply light green. The outdoor colour results from the presence of anthocyanins and is likely to be more green than crimson in colour. The colour is not related to its suitability for cooking and the green-stalked rhubarb is more robust than the indoor grown red-coloured stalks.

Serving Suggestion
Rhubarb Fool - Place 350g rhubarb, 55g sugar, the juice of an orange and enough water to cover the rhubarb into a medium pan and boil rapidly until the rhubarb is soft. In a bowl, fold 1beaten egg white into 150ml whipped cream. Remove the rhubarb from the liquid with a slotted spoon and fold into the egg white and cream mixture (reserving a little rhubarb for decoration). Spoon into dishes and top with the reserved rhubarb.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

green and not a shade of pink

Not ready for picking. Very unappetising

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Only good for a stew

As the previous reviewed states, I received two huge, thick, woody green stems. Not of the standard I would expect and certainly not suitable for the dessert I had intended.

Not as Expected

I was very disappointed to see that I only had 2 sticks of rhubarb in the packet & they were very, very thick & green, no pretty pink at all anywhere. Would not buy again.

Please remove the leaves

The rhubarb is good but please Ocado, make sure all leaves are removed. Mine came with leaves and not everyone knows that they are poisonous!

woody

Cooked this as usual but it turned out woody and dry. So will wait till next year before buying again.

These tasty muffins make the most of rhubarb - the fruit makes them quite dense but incredibly moist, and they can withstand freezing better than most cakes. Try making a double batch and keep half in the freezer for next time.
