5 x Asparagus Pacific 2000
Asparagus Pacific 2000 is acknowledged as the benchmark variety for flavour in our trials, with excellent spear and head qualities. Crops from Early April - Mid June.
5 x Asparagus Ariane
Asparagus Ariane has good-looking stems and a distinctive, full flavour. This purple-topped beauty came first in our trials of over 250 varieties. Crops from Late April - Late June.
5 x Asparagus Millenium
Asparagus Millenium produces slim, tender heads and spears of comparable quality to early season varieties, putting it in a class of its own in the late season asparagus bed. Crops from Mid May - End June.
This looks about ideal for the allotmenteer. The initial expense is soon recouped when you think of the expense of buying it, the bed will crop for twenty years plus, and asparagus is one of those things which is bteer the shorter the time between gathering it and cooking it. Like the books say, put the water on to boil before you go and cut it!
