The stems on my plant have not turned red. They are more green with a slight red blush. Are they still okay to eat? Your assistance would be appreciated.

According to Peter Cundall, there are green-stemmed and red-stemmed varieties of rhubarb.

Hi Max the green stalks are better less bitter and needs less sugar when cooking Rob
