Rhubarb Glaskins Perpetual is a fantastic rhubarb variety, simply plant them once and crop for up to 20 years! The rhubarb produced by these seeds tastes absolutely amazing in pies, crumbles and baking in general. Harvest your Rhubarb Glaskins Perpetual between May and mid-August. The established plants from these seeds grow to a height of 61cm–70cm (24–28"); spread 101–150cm (38–59").
