Asparagus Stewarts Purple
The latest variety of purple asparagus, this F1 hybrid is significantly sweeter than the green varieties, producing an abundance of upright purple spears of medium thickness with closed purple tips.
The spears have a low fibre content thereby making them particularly tender - even when eaten raw so are ideal for a colourful and tasty addition to salads!
Excellent when cooked and will retain its colour when steamed. Commercial trials have shown this variety to out-yield many of the green varieties.
Allow the crowns to develop by not cropping for the first year. Feed in spring with a general fertiliser. Cut foliage back almost to ground level in autumn. Apply a mulch of compost.
