Item Information

Asparagus is extremely nutritious and has many health benefits! "Purple Passion" has many similar characteristics to green asparagus but offers something new for the asparagus connoisseur. It is a unique asparagus variety especially suited to the asparagus enthusiast, whether home gardener or commercial grower. The spears produced have several qualities which make it quite different than common green asparagus. The deep-burgundy coloration produced in these spears is most striking. This variety has a 20% higher sugar content and is often eaten raw. Provides excellent purple color if added to salads raw, but turns green when cooked.
