National Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Day
annually on June 9th
National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day is dedicated to strawberry rhubarb pie! This pie mixes the sweet fruit, strawberries, with the tart vegetable—yes vegetable—rhubarb. Rhubarb is harvested between mid-May and early June, which helps to explain why this day is celebrated on June 9th. Rhubarb pies are popular in the United Kingdom, and can have a variety of styles of crust. The most popular upper crust in the United States for this type of pie is the lattice style. Rhubarb pies are also popular in Canada, as rhubarb can survive in their climate.
