Originally from Asia (Mongolia, China, Siberia ...), the rhubarb is a large perennial herb developing majestic wavy (and poisonous) leaves, carried by strong and long petioles (edible part).
Long used for the healing properties of its roots, this vegetable, which we often consume as a fruit, was introduced to Europe in the 18th century by the English, who have remained very fond of it.
