Add a splash of color to your garden with Purple Passion Asparagus!

This perennial delight is not just visually appealing but also boasts a sweetness that’s 20% higher due to its natural sugar content, surpassing the sweetness of its green counterparts. The stalks, rich in vitamins, are so tender that they can be enjoyed fresh from the garden.

Relish the distinctive, nutty taste of these spears. It’s interesting to note that the purple hue of the asparagus fades to green upon cooking. The Purple Passion Asparagus variety demonstrates resilience in both cold and warm conditions.

Plan your harvest from the beginning of April to the middle of May to enjoy the best of what this plant has to offer.

Each order comes with a pack of 10 bare-root asparagus starts (mostly male).
