Harvest Rhubarb After Seeding


Anonymous added on May 14, 2011 | Answered

Can I harvest rhubarb after it has seeds growing at the top of each stalk? They are already full of seeds in May. And now I'm not sure how to treat the plant. This is the 2nd year growth.

If it's already gone to seed, the plant has bolted and really won't taste that great. Here is an article or two that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/rhubarb/harvesting-rhubarb.htm
