Rhubarb Nutrients and Health Benefits

Rhubarb VegetableI believe that I have never tried Rhubarb or Rheum Rhabarbarum vegetable, so that means I really don’t know how it tastes. Not too long ago one of my relatives offered me to try one of these Rhubarb vegetable stalks, but since I wasn’t sure about this vegetable I decided not to try it. In Russian language Rhubarb is called Pевень. Some people refer to Rhubarb as a vegetable but some refer to it as a fruit because of the regulation, duties, and tax purposes. Some people from around the world prefer to eat Rhubarbs raw and some prefer to cook it. Just to warn you, the leaves on this vegetable are toxic, so try to avoid eating them. People claim that fresh and raw stalks from Rhubarb are as crisp as a Celery and that they have a strong tart taste to them.

Rhubarb vegetable is grown either on fields or in Heated Greenhouses or Hothouses. People believe that the Rhubarbs from a Hothouse are more sweater and more tender than the cultivated Rhubarb vegetable. Some people think that Rhubarb is an excellent choice for jams, but you must remember to add some kind of a natural sweetener to it while boiling it. Since Rhubarb sauce was and still is used a lot in some pies, people refer to it as a Pie Plant. The most common fruit that people use for cooking together with the Rhubarb vegetable is Strawberry.

  1. Thank you so much for such an informative post. Although I’m disappointed that you passed up the opportunity to try rhubarb. If you want to know what it tastes like, it reminds me of a sour green apple in flavor with the texture of celery (minus all the strings). It’s really quite tasty. I really recommend it!
