Mary Washington Asparagus
Asparagus officinalis 'Mary Washington Improved'
(hardy in zones 5-9)
Plant this year and harvest next spring!
An updated version of an old favourite developed in the early 1900s to resist a devastating rust disease that was raging at the time. The disease nearly destroyed asparagus as a crop, but with the introduction of this transformative variety, asparagus made a complete recovery. And now we have this updated version with the same outstanding flavour and heavy yields of tender spears. Plant it once and it will come back every spring for years.
