- Superb flavour
Perennial vegetable growing to 150cm. Thick green spears with purple tips. Superb flavour. Excellent yields. Can be used raw or cooked. Considered a gourmet food. Takes 3 years to produce edible spears but plants last 20 years or more. Very old heirloom variety from 1873.
How to sow and grow:
|Method:||Sow direct or raise seedlings|
|Position:||Part or full sun, moist soil|
|Days to Maturity/flowering:||1095 days (3 years)|
|Care:||Male plants produce better thicker spears so female plants should be removed (female plants produce red poisonous berries). Plants die back every winter and re-sprout every spring. Plants should be grown without interference for the first 3 years to establish a strong root structure, once this is done plants will start producing thick spears that can be cut at ground level as they appear. Plants last 20 years or more.|
