I grew quite a bit of rhubarb from seed when I lived in Austria. It was pretty easy to grow and made beautiful plants.

>I grew some rhubarb from Territorial seeds. It was very easy to start, transplanted very well and all looks pretty uniform to me. None of it is terribly red, but I think the varieties I grew were Victoria and Glaskin's Perpetual and I don't think they are even supposed to be red. Haven't actually harvested any as its still competing with grass pending the completion of my summer fallowing...
