Some of my rhubard stems have bruises which have a clear sticky resin attached. The bruising goes to the centre of the stem and is not just on the surface. Any ideas of the cause please



I would suspect slugs if I was you! oh just read the full question not sure now.

Hi Philip and welcome to GoY, I find this happens with rhubarb as the season wears on. To me it is a sign to stop picking.
