I saw on comp that you should remove the larger leaves of rhubarb because of high water content. Is this true? Thank you

Rhubarb Leaves
by: Virginia P.

Rhubarb grows beautifully with all its leaves intact. There is no reason to remove them for the plant's sake.

Rhubarb leaves do contain a poison, though, so you should remove the leaves before consuming the stalks. This has nothing to do with water, though, so I don't know where that concern came from.
