Asparagus officinalis 'Purple Passion' is the connoisseur's first choice due to this cultivar's higher sugar content offering a sweet flavor, tenderness and beauty. Harvest in late spring from year three onward. The rewards will be delicious, medium width purple spears that are not stringy so no waste and high yield. Use cooked, steamed, pickled and raw in salads and vegetable trays. The spears turn green when cooked and take on a mildly nutty flavour. Asparagus is a heavy feeder and needs rich manure or compost along with a regular fertilizing regime. Deer resistant.
