Asparagus Pacific Purple is sweet and tender with the thick purple spears produced in May and early June. This is a high yielding variety that is super sweet when cooked. Asparagus spears are delicious lightly steamed and served with melted butter or alternatively they are suitable for freezing.
Asparagus are ideal for growing in a sheltered sunny area of the vegetable garden in well prepared ground to which lots of manure or compost has been added the previous autumn. Keep the area weed free and water plants during dry weather. In autumn cut down the ferny stems once they have turned yellow and before the spears appear in spring make a ridge of soil over each row and apply a dressing of fertiliser.

Position: full sun
Soil: moderately-fertile well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average
Hardiness: fully hardy
