Seed Details:
These tasty spears are the sweetest treat. The flavour will leave your taste buds wondering if what you ate was actually a vegetable. It is not like store-bought asparagus. Not even close. Asparagus forced grown that then ripens as it is shipped loses its actual sweet flavour. Initial cultivation takes at least 3 years before the plant is established. Asparagus fern is also extremely popular as it is cultivated for the fern-like foliage it produces and is used as a popular cut flower filler, especially in roses. So if a few spears go too far and become tough and leggy. Stake it up and let asparagus finish their life cycle, which will include dropping its ripe red berries into the ground and increasing your crop in the coming years.
Instructions:
Soak seeds overnight and sow 2 mm deep. Germination can occur in 10 to 20 days but often times longer. Asparagus appreciates a cold treatment of 3 to 5 weeks and then soaking seeds until germination for transfer to a loamy soil medium is also a practice we have found successful.
Habitat:
Asparagus enjoys cool weather conditions with evenly moist but well-drained soils. For best results plant in full sun location and protect from cold weather.
History:
Asparagus has a long history traced back to the Roman and Egyptian eras. It was eaten fresh when in season and was dried for consumption in off-season months.
Historic Uses:
Asparagus is low in calories making it a great healthy choice for a weight loss diet. Asparagus is high in Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and folic acid. It is a diuretic and antioxidant with a high fibre content that assists in ridding the body of excess water and clearing out the intestinal tract for healthier body function.
