Does anyone have GREEN Rhubarb? I'm used to thick red stalks, but what I've been given is about pencil thin--or thinner, and Green.
Just wanting to make sure its safe to eat?

I have never seen completely Grandma's was greener that the newer reds, but had some red. Does it taste like rhubarb.

I said I wouldn't kill any more rhubarb plants, but succumbed to a beauty at a feed store and bought another one.
I think it is the oldtimer Chipman's Canada Red.

RE: Green Rhubarb?

Yes. It's fine. Simply a different variety of rhubarb where the stems will never turn red. Go for it.
