Rheum officinalis


Rhubarb is a leafy green that is related to buckwheat and is considered both a vegetable and a fruit in the U.S. The leaf is generally discarded because it often contains unsafe levels of oxalic acid, but the pink-colored petiole, or stalk, is traditionally cooked in sugar as a pie filling. The root of the plant, which contains emodin and other anthraquinones, is highly valued in Asian culture. Rhubarb root, referred to in China as da-huang, is harvested from mature plants that are between five and ten years old and is then carefully dried for use in making tinctures and extracts.
