Sweet Purple Asparagus

$ 3.50

Asparagus officinalis

Purple asparagus has been around a long, long time. Some reports so it being grown in France more than 150 years ago, and it was not new then.

Sweet Purple spears are about 6 to 9 inches long, much larger than traditional green types and also thicker. Best of all, they are stringless and tender, with less fiber than their green cousins, so they can be eaten from tip to base -- no need to snap off the tough end! Boasting 20% more sugar than green asparagus, they are mild, nutty, and sweet.

Sweet Purple Asparagus will produce heavily and dependably for up to 15 seasons (or more)! 

Asparagus plants are perennials.
From seed, Asparagus takes 1 to 2 years to mature. Once established, Asparagus plants should grow for at least 1 full year in the garden before they are harvested.
