Price:  £17.95 inc. p&p 17.9500 In Stock New

code: ASP003

Asparagus officinalis 'Stewarts Purple'

This new purple F1 hybrid is considerably sweeter than any of the green asparagus varieties. The low fibre content means the spears are particularly tender even when eaten raw, with virtually no waste at the base. Excellent cooked but also a very attractive and tasty addition to salads. Commercial trials have shown this variety to outyield many of the green types.

RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators

Season: mid/late.

Available for delivery: late March - late May.

Price includes p&p.


More Information

Asparagus is expensive to buy in the shops but is easy to grow and tastes delicious freshly harvested from the garden. In our opinion there is no other vegetable that beats home-grown asparagus, simply steamed and served with melted butter or Hollondaise sauce. Once established 12 asparagus crowns will produce up to 10kg (22lb) annually for 12 years or more. We supply one year old hand selected ‘grade A’ asparagus plants which will establish quickly so that you can harvest your first crop (we recommend only sparingly) just one year after planting. Plants should be spaced 38cm (15in) apart in rows 1m (3ft) apart. Available from late March to late May.
