ASPARAGUS PURPLE PASSION
Grower Notes:

Asparagus officinalis 'Purple Passion' is commonly referred to as Purple Passion Asparagus. This herbaceous heirloom perennial vegetable is easy to grow and care for. It features deep-burgundy coloration with higher sugar content than other asparagus and delicious when eaten raw. Stalks turn green when cooked. It should be planted 6-8 inches apart and its spears are usually harvested in May. After harvest, the plant grows tall fern-like foliage before it dies off after autumn's frost. It goes dormant during the winter months.

Purple Passion is a prized, ultra-sweet Asparagus with excellent flavor and reliability. It consists of both male and female plants and 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.
