(Persia Digest) – At a distance of a few kilometres from Shahr-e Babak lie the picturesque plains of Dasht-e Babak known as the rhubarb plains.

This magical land has a surface area of 3800 hectares and lies on the foothills of Masinan, Miduk, and Kang mounts, 20 milometers to the north of Shahr-e Babak in Kerman Province. It is one of Iran’s largest rhubarb plains and unique in its yield. During the flowering season from spring till summer, the plains turn completely red.

Rhubarb grows in the cool weather of mountainous areas and is rich in vitamins, A, B, C and minerals such as calcium, potassium, and sodium. Its healing qualities strengthen the nervous system, and help hepatic dysfunction and certain pains in the digestive system.
