An excellent addition to any asparagus planting, Pacific Purple produces a bountiful harvest of very mild, sweet-tasting spears that are a delight to eat. The spears are thicker in diameter than green cultivars and their sugar content is 20% higher too! Mid season variety.
Mouth-watering asparagus tips are still considered something of a luxury vegetable, and the supermarkets certainly price them as such! So why not grow your own? The tall foliage is extremely attractive, and the plants can be grown in a large container too! We supply one year old crowns, grown in East Anglia which can be picked the year after planting.
