Asparagus, Garden (Asparagus officinalis), packet of 50 seeds

$3.95

Family: Lily (Liliaceae)

Hardy to Zone 3 to 9

Dioecious perennial.  Native to the Mediterranean, this is culinary Asparagus that produces both male and female plants (both sexes deliciously edible).  Harvest fresh spears in the spring of the second year and ongoing. Spears are excellent when eaten raw, pickled, or lightly steamed. Drizzle with olive oil, summer savory and garlic.  Yummmm.  Easily grown from seed in pots or outdoor nursery beds.  Sow in spring and grow out for a year before transplanting to the permanent bed.  The asparagus bed is best placed near the edge of the garden as it must remain undisturbed and keep producing for up to 20 years.  Add organic mulch seasonally to build soil in the bed and discourage weeds and grasses.

50 seeds/pkt, Open-pollinated, Untreated, NO GMO’s

  1. Question

    Is this a seed or a spear? When do you plant? After planting does it take two years before you harvest?

      Hi, It is 50 seeds in a packet. Yes, it takes 2 years and the plants are long-lived. Richo

      How closely do you plant them in their temporary bed, and in their permanent bed?

      Hello Ozark, I generally seed these in 2 inches apart and space the permanent plants a foot apart. They are after all upright spears. r
