Question: 

When can I start harvesting newly planted rhubarb?

Answer: 

After planting rhubarb, it’s best to wait 2 years (growing seasons) before harvesting any stalks.  The two year establishment period allows the plants to become strong and productive. 

Rhubarb can be harvested over a 4 week period in the third year.  In the fourth and succeeding years, stalks can be harvested for 8 to 10 weeks.
