Asparagus is one of the earliest of spring-harvested crops. This perennial is easily grown from crowns or roots, and once established will produce tender spears every spring for many years. We offer seeds as well as hardy, one-year-old crowns of reliable, standard varieties with complete, easy-to-follow growing information.
This page contains our heirloom and open pollinated varieties.
Mary Washington is the classic asparagus. This variety is a
high-yield perennial, and should provide a bountiful harvest for several
years to come. Plant once and it will grow for years producing lots of
asparagus spears. Recommend for Texas and other warm growing areas, as
well as cool growing areas. Harvest in about two years.
