ASPARAGUS UC 157 F2 - 10 Seeds

(Asparagus Officinalis)

Asparagus UC157 F2 seeds are an outstanding variety that gives the advantage of earlier production and heavier total yields than some of the older commercial varieties.

Three to five dark green spears are produced from each mature crown. The spears are 1.5 to 2mm in diameter, with light bracts. It has moderate tolerance to fusarium root rot.

Growing asparagus from seeds is an exercise in patience, but well worth the effort because freshly picked asparagus is like nothing available from the grocery store. Like most garden vegetables, freshness adds depth of flavour and natural sweetness because the sugars have not broken down into starches. Fresh asparagus is like freshly picked corn or tomatoes straight from the vine.

Asparagus is a perennial vegetable. It can be served hot, with drawn butter; cold, in a salad; in soups; and as a sandwich filling or flavouring. A perfect healthy addition to any vegetable garden.

It is best left for two years so that it can grow into a strong plant. Plants take time to establish, they can produce up to 20 years. Requires well-drained soil. Water frequently. It takes 14 – 21 days to germinate.
