This is the dawning of the age of asparagus.
This delicious perennial vegetable is a popular choice due to it's high productivity and wonderful flavour. It produces lovely green spears with deep purple tips, and makes a fantastic addition to any vegetable patch. One of the more popular vegetables, this heirloom asparagus variety dates back to the 1870's! There is a good reason it is still grown and preserved by both home and commercial growers - so why not give it a go and see what all the fuss is about!
'Connover's Colossal' takes approximately 3 years to produce edible spears, and the plants last 20 years or more. Keep well fed and weed free. Grows to approximately 150cm.
