A vegetable known for its reddish stalks and sour taste, rhubarb is cooked and often sweetened in European and North American countries while it is used for medicines in the Asian continent. It’s an unusual vegetable often mistaken to be a fruit and grows in the mountainous regions. It is a rich source of antioxidants and fibre.
