Mary Washington Asparagus Seeds

A favourite, early maturing variety with tasty large purple tipped spears. This variety has good rust resistance.

Male plants are significantly more productive, so remove female plants which are identifiable by red (poisonous) berries. Although it can take 3 years to produce spears, plants will last up to 20 years.
