GIANT ASPARAGUS ARGENTEUIL – AGES OLD HEIRLOOM WITH RICH PINK/PURPLE TIPS! THIS CAN BE PICKED IN TWO YEARS SAVING A WHOLE YEAR ON ALL OTHER VARIETIES!

Description
Asparagus officinalis is a French heirloom with thick rose-purple stems and purple tips. This ancient perennial vegetable produces early in spring and has an excellent flavour. In France it is blanched to produce white spears called “white gold”.

Grow Notes
Likes light friable soils and a pH around 7.0 in a sunny or partially shaded spot. Prepare with compost and well-rotted manure, mulch heavily in summer.

Male plants produce thicker and better spears than the female plants, so the females can be removed (female plants produce red poisonous berries) if not growing for seed. Plants die back every winter and re-sprout every spring.

Sow
Sow after frost at 1-2cms deep and 30cms apart. Space rows at 90-120cms apart.

Germination
14-21 days at 23-27°C.

Maturity
Seed forms good strong crowns after 2 years. Don’t pick spears until this time as the plant needs to establish a strong root structure. Once established can last 20 years.
