Question about pie?
Is Strawberry rhubarb the usual classic combination or are there other types of rhubarb pies?
@Anonymous - We got a real conspiracy on our hands!
All great answers but there can only be one winner. Sorry. 😩

Yes. There's rhubarb pie. It's got no strawberries. It's the kind that people generally make homemade from rhubarb that grows in their backyards. The reason store-bought throws in strawberries is rhubarb is too hard to cultivate, making strawberries a far cheaper substitute to use to replace a portion of the more expensive, harder to get rhubarb.

Rhubarb also goes well with raspberries, with plums or with apple, or on its own.

I've seen apple-rhubarb, and one time, I made a "bluebarb" pie- rhubarb and blueberries and it was HEAVEN. In stores and at restaurants, I pretty much only ever seen strawberry rhubarb, not even plain rhubarb.

What a good answer the first Anonymous gave.
I've also heard that strawberry-rhubarb pie is cheaper than all rhubarb (unless you grow your own), so it's a cost-saving measure, too.
I've made all-rhubarb pies--a hot baked pie more like a cherry pie than a strawberry-rhubarb pie--a few times, since my husband loves them. I don't grow it and I spend a silly amount on fresh rhubarb.
