Asparagus officinalis

This early maturing variety has purple tipped, large thick spears. It has excellent quality, very tasty spears. This ia a very productive variety. The spears are rich in manganese and selenium, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. It is low in sodiumand is a good source of vit.B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc, and a very good source of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A, C, E, K. Since asparagus originated in a maritime habitat it thrives in soils that are too saline for normal weeds to grow in. Thus a little salt was traditionally used to suppress weeds in asparagus beds. Soil fertility is a large factor in asparagus success. Sow seeds 1 cm deep after frosts have finished or plant into pots and transplant when well established (often after 2 years). keep well mulched with seaweed being preferred.
