Description

Heritage Status: Overseas
Bio-Region of Origin: Europe
Number of Seeds: 20

Description: From the garden of Henry Harrington in Southland these are one of the most well known heritage cultivars of asparagus. They are green with a purple tinge, are very delicious, nutritious and ready to eat in Spring when there is little else. Easier to grow than the more modern cultivars.

Asparagus seed is slow to germinate. Grow on for full year or transplant in rows in very well drained soil. Allow the ferns that grow to feed the roots don’t cut them until they die back naturally in autumn. The crowns should stand a moderate cut the second year with full production by Year 3. The secret to healthy crowns that last up to 15 years is excellent drainage, a sunny position, and lots of mulch.
