Asparagus


Growing asparagus is a long-term, but incredibly worthwhile investment. Be sure to prepare your permanent asparagus bed in advance, so that you can plant the asparagus crowns without delay. Although asparagus beds take several years to establish, each asparagus crown can produce up to 25 spears per year and will continue cropping for 25 years.

Asparagus officinalis 'Pacific Purple' (Spring Planting)

 Customer Rating

Spring planting.

A colourful variety that is suitable for spring and autumn planting. Asparagus 'Pacific Purple' produces stringless spears that are more tender and sweet than many green varieties. The colour can be lost when cooked so they are best steamed or eaten raw with dips, or sliced in salads. This high yielding asparagus will also produce white spears if earthed up. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 45cm (18").
