Asparagus Crown Purple
This product is currently sold out.
1 x pre packed locally grown, mature purple asparagus crown in potting media, ready to plant into the garden. Should be productive for 20 years or more.
Its purple colour comes from the high levels of anthocyanins (potent antioxidants) in the spears.
It has a lower fibre content than white or green asparagus, making it more tender and the whole spear can be eaten from tip to butt. Purple asparagus produces sweeter, thicker spears than green asparagus.
Fresh purple asparagus is deeply fruit flavoured and tender crisp.
