ASPARAGUS MARY WASHINGTON
Grower Notes:

Asparagus officinalis 'Mary Washington' is commonly referred to as Mary Washington Asparagus. This herbaceous heirloom perennial vegetable is easy to grow and care for. It produces male or female edible spears which are harvested from April through May - earlier than other asparagus varieties. After harvest, the plant grows tall fern-like foliage before it dies off after autumn's frost. It goes dormant during the winter months.

Mary Washington Asparagus has superior flavor, reliability and extra-long cutting period. It is resistant to some rust and blight and produces heavily for many years. 60-day cutting season. It thrives in full sun in rich, fertile, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Roots take 2-3 years to produce a crop. Plant roots in early spring in a weed-free bed.
