Asparagus Purple Passion 25 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Asparagus Purple Passion grows purple spears. Sweeter and more tender than green varieties, and a colorful option for raw eating in salads. Color fades when cooked, but excellent flavor is retained. Tighter spacing (6 to 8 feet) is recommended for best market size. Harvest in 2 to 3 years when growing from seed. From then on, harvest every spring for the next 15 to 20 years.
In the fall, the asparagus will shoot up fern-like stems. Leave them alone. After the frost turns them brown, cut the stems about one inch from the ground. Cover with hay or mulch and leave them alone until spring. In the spring, the edible shoots will start coming up all over again. If you take good care of your asparagus patch it can last up to 20 years so you really get your money's worth with asparagus.

Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
