Asparagus officinalis

Mary Washington asparagus is a strong growing heirloom variety that produces long, thick spears in May and June. Rust resistant, vigorous, sweet, tender and succulent. Asparagus grown from 2 year crowns typically take 1-2 years to reach production. Perennial.

A mature asparagus bed signals the coming of spring, pushing up delicate new shoots when winter makes its exit for another year.
