Mama's little baby loves rhubarb, rhubarb... Beebopareebop Rhubarb Pie.
—Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion
Tart and tangy rhubarb has flourished in America for two centuries, although it is native to Asia where as early as 2700 B.C. it was used medicinally. Rhubarb thrives in cool weather and it’s one of the first plants to mature each year. Prime time for rhubarb is April through September.
