Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Mary Washington Asparagus is a delicate and fresh flavored gourmet vegetable.

The large, tender spears are high-yielding and disease resistant. Unlike most vegetables, asparagus is a perennial. Once the plant has established, the tender spears come back year after year. Asparagus is excellent for canning and freezing.

 


 

Sow Easy seeds are pelleted with an all-natural coating made from a mix of clay, perlite, and FDA-approved food coloring. This coating adds some bulk to small seeds and stands out in the soil, making direct sowing and accurate spacing easier than ever. However, the coating does add a few days to the germination time when compared to uncoated seed.
