Rheum ssp. Zack's grandma Barbara-Anne grew this variety on her homestead near Poplar Hill. It has long since been used in a multitude of crisps, jams, tarts, sauces and pies, enjoyed throughout the generations. Rhubarb is nutritious, incredibly easy to grow, and sports a showy bloom appreciated by both pollinators and humans. This perennial vegetable creates a lush, delicious ground cover.

To Order for Spring 2021: orders for spring shipping or pick-up can be placed as early as December. If you wish to reserve anything before that time or have any questions, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. We sell only apples and pears bareroot in the fall, as they are most winter hardy. Everything else (as well as apple and pear) is available in spring.
A note on the "Grandma" Series: Inspired by Ken's 'Grandma Ethel Black currant', we decided to curate our own repertoire of family favourites! Check out our tried-n-true gooseberries and raspberries in addition to the currants and rhubarb.
