Asparagus Backlim Crowns - Crowns

  • Catalogue Code 1080-6069
  • Pack Contents: 5 Asparagus Crowns

Nothing beats the delicious flavour of freshly harvested home grown British Asparagus, simply steamed and served with melting butter!

Asparagus Backlim is a mid to late season male variety, with consistent yields of large, smooth spears with well closed tips. It boasts good disease resistance, and is a very reliable performer in the kitchen garden.

Marshalls supply one year old, well grown crowns. To allow optimum development do not cut in first year and cut spears only sparingly in second year.

Features

  • F1 Hybrids are crossed varieties that are exceptionally vigorous and longer lasting
  • Will flower well in full sun
  • Varieties that, in our selector's opinion, have exceptional flavour
