Yorkshire forced rhubarb
Yorkshire forced rhubarb is known for its delicate flavour and striking crimson stalks, but it is a fragile crop with few growers left. Unlike outdoor varieties, forced roots are grown in fields for two years, where they store energy and are moved into forcing sheds after November frosts. They are then grown in complete darkness and harvested by candlelight, to avoid photosynthesis turning them green and tough. Buy Yorkshire Rhubarb from your local greengrocer or online
