Victoria Rhubarb Growing Season
Victoria rhubarb is a cold-weather plant and should be planted during the early spring while it’s still cool outside. Victoria rhubarb can only be planted in hardiness zones 1–13; all other zones do not reach an adequate temperature. Victoria rhubarb does best when planted in areas that get an average of six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. You should plant your Victoria rhubarb seeds about 4 to 6 feet apart and 2 inches deep.
On average, it takes three years for Victoria rhubarb to reach maturity, and you will know to harvest when the stems are red and 12” to 18” long. Once Victoria rhubarb reaches maturity, it will produce harvestable stems for up to eight years.
- Remove the rhubarb leaves but DO NOT eat the leaves of your Victoria rhubarb as they are toxic!
- Always leave ⅓ of the leafstalk on each plant to keep them healthy.
- Established rhubarb plants need to be divided every five to 10 years or when their stems are crowded and thin.
