Rhubarb in NC
I bought a rhubarb plant a few years ago and have divided it over the years but only once tried to cook some of it. Is it the climate here or the variety, it wasn't just sour but SOUR, sugar won't do a thing. It also does not turn a real red as did the rhubarb where I lived in Canada. We are only in the first week in April and my rhubarb is putting up what I can only describe as seed stalks, is this right? My mother might have cut back this seed stalk so perhaps this is normal.
Thanks for any guidance you can offer. I have a son who really wants a rhubarb pie and I would love to think that someday I might be able to bake one for him.
