Glaskins perpetual rhubarb is the only rhubarb suitable for late season harvesting as the oxalic acid remains low.  Oxalic acid is what gives the raw rhubarb that sharp taste.  Glaskins is perfect for baking pies, and jams with its large long bright red stalks, juicy flavours and low oxalic acid content.

Glaskins is perfect for forcing and crops well.
