Rhubarb originated from Asia over 2000 years ago. It was initially cultivated for its medicinal qualities. Rhubarb is a close relative of sorrel, and although mistaken for a fruit is actually a member of the vegetable family. Rhubarb leaves are poisonous, containing high levels of oxalic acid.
Cut all of the leaf away from the Rhubarb petiole and the petioles will keep well in the refrigerator for two to three weeks in sealed plastic bags.
