Ready for Shipment-Crimson Winter Rhubarb
The handsome appearance of the stalks of the Crimson Winter Rhubarb adds greatly to the attractiveness of this "vegetable and fruit" in the market. Mr. Burbank has given particular attention to the development of plants that will grow stalks of a uniform size, this being an obvious additional advantage in marketing the product. The color of the Winter Rhubarb gives it added attractiveness when it finally comes to the table.
