Rhubarb - Rheum

Yes, we know Rhubarb is not a fruit, but really a vegetable, but like Tomatoes, which are really a vegetable and not fruit, we opted to put rhubarb where it "fits" and not where is technically belongs.  Besides, when you think of Rhubarb, you think of Rhubarb Pie.  And what typically goes in pies?  Fruit.  Whatever, send us your email to correct us anyway, we don't mind.
