Asparagus Sweet Purple
Highly productive and healthy Purple Asparagus. Sweet taste, less fibre, greater spear diameter and better conformation are some of Sweet Purples many attributes. Asparagus seed is slow to germinate. Grow on for full year or transplant in rows in very well drained soil. Allow the "ferns" that grow to feed the roots, don't cut them until they die back naturally in autumn. The crowns should stand a moderate cut the second year with full production by Year 3. The secret to healthy crowns that last up to 15 years is excellent drainage, a sunny position, and lots of mulch.
Matures second/third season from transplant.
