Pie plant - Rheum rhaponticum
Appreciated for centuries for its food and medicinal qualities, rhubarb originated in Siberia .  It is an easy to grow crop that requires little maintenance to produce an abundance of lucious stalks.  It is best to let rhubarb roots mature over a three year period to get the best yields.  The old rule says:  no harvest the first year, harvest only a little the second year and the third year take all you want.  Don't eat the leaves, though:  they contain oxalic acid which is toxic.  In the 1700 and 1800's, rhubarb pills were taken for stomach upset.
