Rhubarb Capital of Minnesota

By Linda Tancs

Lanesboro, Minnesota is the rhubarb capital of the state.  Is rhubarb a fruit or a vegetable?  That depends on whom you ask and where you live.  In the U.S., rhubarb has been ordained a fruit in New York.  Tart like a lemon, it finds its way into pies, crisps, sauces, soups and drinks.  On 1 June Lanesboro celebrates its annual Rhubarb Festival at Sylvan Park.  The day’s events include a tasting, a stalk throw and toss, a growers’ competition and entertainment by–no surprises here–the Rhubarb Sisters.
