Twin pack contains 20 crowns (10 of each variety):
Mondeo - An all male hybrid that is suitable for both spring and autumn planting. This versatile variety has created huge interest due to its impressive yields and quality, especially early in the season. The delicious spears have tight tips throughout the season with excellent flavour and good disease resistance. Early season variety.
Pacific Purple - An excellent addition to any asparagus planting, Pacific Purple produces a bountiful harvest of very mild, sweet-tasting spears that are a delight to eat. The spears are thicker in diameter than green cultivars and their sugar content is 20% higher too! Mid season variety.
Mouth-watering asparagus tips are still considered something of a luxury vegetable, and the supermarkets certainly price them as such! So why not grow your own? The tall foliage is extremely attractive, and the plants can be grown in a large container too! We supply one year old crowns, grown in East Anglia which can be picked the year after planting.
