Asparageyser Asparagus

Pot, ASAS $4.20

Vigorous Explosive Growth-Just add Hot Water and Butter

Hybrid type asparagus grown from seed using F-1 crosses over generations make this selection perfect for growing asparagus in moisture laden areas  This hybrid was selected for its ablility to resist rust and fusarium. Rust is a fungal disease that tends to cause the plants to loose vigor and lower yields. Since it is water born, it usually is prevelant in areas with high moisture levels making asparagus growing more difficult. This is a good cross from seed and can be reproduced from root cuttings too if you find some seedlings better than others. We plant numerous seeds in each pot and you will find these easy to plant by just removing the paper band pot and sinking in the ground at the same level they are growing. Harvest can begin in 1-2 seasons after planting.
