What is rhubarb?
Rhubarb is a perennial plant that grows well in colder climates. Its stems are edible, but it is sometimes planted as an ornamental plant because it has beautiful, bright red stems and broad green leaves. When eaten raw, rhubarb has an intensely bitter taste that is not generally liked.
