The Mary Washington Asparagus is a popular old heirloom variety that produces vigorous, uniform spears with a sweet, nutty flavor. Asparagus plants are perennials that can easily produce for 20+ years, so give this vegetable a permanent and sunny spot in your garden. To ensure many years of future production, wait until the second year to cut and consume the spears.
- Early producer
- Cold hardy, but protect from frost
- Easy to care for, once established
- Beautiful fern-like foliage lingers after harvest
Asparagus can be considered a power food among veggies. It is packed with vitamins and minerals, delivering a more complete balance than any other.
