Rhubarb is perhaps one of the hardiest edible plants to grow in the Tetons. It grows best in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.
Once mature, stalks can be harvested regularly early spring through summer. If you can’t use your fresh rhubarb, simply slice it into 1 inch pieces and freeze it in a single layer on cookie sheets. Place the frozen pieces into a zip top freezer bag for later use.
