The Forced Rhubarb Season usually runs from December to March. Tunnelled rhubarb runs from March to May and outdoor from April/June and forced picks up again in December.
Looking after your Rhubarb
We keep the Rhubarb chilled to lock in the freshness. When your bundle arrives if not putting to work straight away then keep it in the fridge. You will have around 1 week with it being at its best but do monitor. Rhubarb is quite hardy and so if you leave it a bit too long then it is worth trying to cook with it so it doesn’t go to waste.
