10 Bare Root Purple Asparagus Crowns
These are 1 year old crowns - They are HUGE! You won't be disappointed
Purple Passion Variety
Long lived perennial crop - can live up to 15 years
Purple varieties are more slender and tender than the green - because of this they are great raw or slightly cooked in salads. Purple color does fade with cooking.
May not perform well in warmer areas such as TX, MS, GA, LA, AL, or FL
Hardy in zones 4-8
Part Shade to Full Sun
Plant Height is 24-36"
Plant 6-8" apart allowing 3-6' between rows. Planting is similar to growing Indeterminate Potatoes, digging a trench 8-10" deep and placing bare root plants in. Cover roots lightly then as the plants begin to grow cover more with soil and repeat a few times until trench is filled. You will be able to harvest the 2nd year.
Will come with complete planting and harvesting instructions
