This New Zealand-bred, purple speared, mid season variety is sweeter, more tender (on account of its low fibre) and higher in antioxidants than green types. It is also high yielding and absolutely delicious. So tender, it can even be eaten raw if desired.
Supplied as 1 year old crowns.
Even a small asparagus bed is a worthwhile, long-term investment, which will reward you with succulent spears early every summer for 10 years or more. It is also much easier to plant and to grow than many people think!
Years ago it used to be grown in specially prepared raised beds, but today’s modern hybrid varieties perform really well ‘on the level’ and on most well drained soils. Try to pick a sunny position, removing all perennial weeds and as many stones as possible prior to planting. Full planting and care instructions are included with every order.
