Rhubarb Triangle

Posted by Alison Mundie on 23 May 2008 at 10:45 AM

 

One of the things Yorkshire is famed for is rhubarb growing, and the 'Rhubarb Triangle' - an area between Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield - has recently been recreated in miniature at Harlow Carr.   English rhubarb production has been centred on West Yorkshire since the late 19th century and the scaled-down version is in celebration of our local culinary heritage.  The new bed (near the kitchen garden) contains over 40 varieties, including 'Grandad's Favourite', 'Cawood Delight', 'Muriel' and Yorkshire-bred 'Paragon'.

You have the national collection of rhubarb at Harlow Carr do you? I think I read it somewhere on my last visit.
