Rhubarb

Rhubarb would have to be one of the most productive and easy to grow of perennial food plants. 
As a perennial crop, good soil preparation is essential. Well-rotted manure, compost and blood and bone can be dug in with abandon. An application of lime is also useful for those with very acid soils.

Tolerant of total neglect, rhubarb will, however, abundantly repay any horticultural kindness such as applications of well-rotted manure, compost  and moist soil during the growing season.
