Wild Selection of the Cultivated Asparagus-Can be produced directly from seed or plants. True to type.

Our seed plants have been here for over 30 years and are still productive. Has a stronger flavor than the named selections available. You can propagate it by seeds. The result is a very long lived species asparagus with the best of flavor and vigor. The idea of a self propagating asparagus is that the seed you produce from it can be used to replant or expand a planting without relying on outside sources. Space 1 ft. apart in rows 3 ft. apart. Ships starting in fall of 2018 in September and October.
