Asparagus Purple Passion

Did you know that an established asparagus patch produces fresh, tender spears for 20 years? That's quite a return on a small financial and time investment. Purple Passion asparagus produces green stalks with pretty purple coloring on the stalks and tips, which changes to bright green when steamed more than 2 minutes. This variety has up to 20% more sugar and therefore lends itself to eating raw served with dips. Purple Passion is a tetraploid strain, rather than diploid like the green types and the tetraploid genetics produce larger diameter stalks with less fibrous strands. If you've dreamed of harvesting from your own asparagus patch this is the year to get started.
