Rhubarb

Rhubarb is a perennial plant characterized by its long, fleshy, red stalks or sticks growing from thick rhizomes. It has large, wide green leaves, so nuances of rhubarb vary from green and pale pink to red and crimson. There have been certain discussions on whether to place rhubarb among the vegetable or fruit categories. Even though it has been considered vegetable for a long time, it is treated as a fruit in the USA.
