Rhubarb shoot

Rhubarb shoot

It sounds like the name of a pirate, but it actually means rhubarb in Italian.

I’ve never seen it for sale in Italy and I’ve never met anyone who knew what it was!

Except I suppose for the garden centres which sell little plants …

This is one of them, peeping up again after disappearing entirely for a couple of years.

I hope I get some decent stalks as I’m very partial to it!
