Gourmet quality. Deep purple spears are very thick with no fibrous strings so the entire spear can be used. Flavor is unique, sweeter than green asparagus, with a mild, nutty taste. A delicacy when cooked and so tender it's often eaten raw. Very productive. Turns green when cooked.
Now on sale. Were 10 for $13.50, now 10 for $9.50.
1 FOR $0.95

    I have ordered the sweet purple asparagus before and I love the taste and the stalks are strong. However, the roots that were recently shipped came with a fungus or mildew on the plants and have failed to emerge this spring after I planted them.

    Mold occasionally develops on asparagus crowns during shipping. This type of mold usually does not affect the growth or survival after planting. We are sorry to hear that your asparagus did not grow, and we have shipped replacement asparagus plants to you at no charge. Below are our planting recommendations for asparagus.
    Asparagus grows best in a weed free, fertile soil amended well with organic matter. We recommend planting asparagus crowns in a trench 8 to 10 inches deep, with plants 12 to 15 inches apart and rows 3 to 4 feet apart. Ensure crowns are planted with the buds pointed upward. Initially cover the crowns with 2 to 3 inches of soil, and fill the trench gradually as the shoots grow. Do not completely cover the shoots once they emerge.
