I have found some rhubarb growing in my garden and it now has large leaves and the stalks are quite thick. But I don't really know what to look for to know when it is ready to cut. When do you pick rhubarb?

When it is quite red.
Don't even think about it till that happens, or you will get a very nasty taste.
p.s....I love the stuff :)

Personally I wouldn't.. I don't like it. But I think it's when the stalks are red.
I hate rhubarb personally so I never pick it :)
I don't grow rhubarb, so have never picked it.
I have only grown it once and it did not work but I would pick it when it is already red as against it being still green as I think it would be sweeter then.

They don't look like rhubarb plants, in your photo, Annlu! My in-laws always grow it in their previous garden. You cook it with some sugar. You can also cook it with apple slices. It's yummy cold over ice-cream or with Greek yogurt on top of it.
