  1. We live in Western NY and in a climate perfect for growing this fruit but we cannot find it anywhere. I grew up in Western Penna and my Grandma and Mom cooked tons of it and it grew in the back yard like a weed....howbeit delicious weed! I will keep looking though.

    1. Joyce, you can buy rhubarb seed and start your own. That's what I did. It takes a few years till they are ready to pick but mine have done well.

    2. You can also buy rhubarb root stock from nurseries or seed catalogs and you will have rhubarb to pick much sooner.

  2. Oh Bev - it's Rhubarb season over here too!! Love it. Your recipe sounds delicious.

  3. I made this for my family last evening. I happened to have strawberries on hand that were starting to over-ripen, so I diced those and used them in place of the blueberries. This was a fantastic dessert, my family loved it. There was still a bit of tartness to the rhubarb, which we appreciated very much. ~Cindy in Iowa, USA
