A new variety from Stockbridge House, that has the added advantage of being superb for early forcing, producing thick, bright red, juicy sticks of very high quality. Of stiff upright growth, the long, top grade stalks are very easy to pull, the leaves are typically small and arrow shaped. Stockbridge Arrow is a heavy cropper with a season similar to the old favourite, Victoria, and the first of a new generation of rhubarb, providing the finest quality sticks for the most delicious dishes. Early forcing is very simple, just place an upturned dustbin over the crown in January or February to enjoy a heavy, colourful crop just a few weeks later long before the normal outdoor crops are ready. When forced, the sticks are deep red in colour over most of their length, thick, tender and juicy Highly recommended.
