Asparagus

Main Category: 
Asparagus-'Purple Passion'
Purple Passion Asparagus

 ‘Purple Passion’ is considered a connoisseur’s selection of asparagus with a refined sweet flavor (20% more sugar!) which becomes mildly nutty when cooked. 

 In April and May, a heavy yield of attractive smoky purple spears is produced.  They can be harvested for about eight weeks before the plants go to seed. 

The spears are tall and have pointed heads.  They are a bit more narrow than ‘Jersey Giant’, but wider than others in the Jersey series.  These purple spears are not stringy like typical asparagus and the whole spear can be cooked without wasting the end. 

Add raw pieces of ‘Purple Passion’ to salads and veggie trays for a touch of color.  The spears will turn green when cooked. 

This variety is said to have some resistance to rust, root and crown rots, and fusarium. 

 

Asparagus is one of the more permanent vegetable crops in a garden. It typically produces for 10-15 years.
