Description Germination

Called 'the most elegant of all vegetables', this French heirloom never disappoints with its large, 2 cm thick spears. Prolific and produces spears earlier in spring than most varieties. Ultimate variety for white asparagus. Excellent flavour, very tender and loaded with folic acid and other healthy vitamins and minerals. I'm tired of the run of the mill asparagus with wimpy stems and I am now growing this. Plants create a circular fan of fleshy rhizomes and are heavy feeders, so its best to top dress with composted manure in late winter once the snow is gone...or before snow falls in late fall/early winter. Can adapt to a wide variety of well draining soils. Heat tolerant.
