This variety has established the gold standard by which to judge good rhubarb! Large, fat stems, a bright red skin, lack of stringiness, and finally a tart, apple-gooseberry flavour with a hint of lemon or grapefruit. The creator of this famous heirloom rhubarb in the 1830's was Joseph Myatt of Manor Farm in Deptford, England. The two physical characteristics of ‘Victoria’ that really made it stand out from other varieties were its bright red colour and large stems.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
