Purple Passion Asparagus Crowns

$31.25

The “Purple Passion” cultivar of asparagus produces a beautiful burgundy  colored, low fibered spear with tightly  oppressed  bud  scales  and  a rounded head shaped tip.  The interior spear color is creamy-green.

Spear diameters  are  larger  than green asparagus due to the vigorous plant growth associated with the tetraploid (4N) condition of its genetics.  Green asparagus cultivars are diploid (2N).   The very mild flavor of this sweet spear is often referred to being like  that of  fresh green  peas.  Sugar  content of the  spear  is  20%  higher  than  green asparagus.
