Asparagus Pacific 2000 Crowns x5

  • Catalogue Code 1080-6083
  • Pack Contents: 5x Asparagus Crowns

A variety bred for its natural sweetness which means you can enjoy it raw or cooked. Pacific 2000 is particularly tender, producing slim tight spears which we recommend you cut and add to salads to give them a satisfying and rare flavour.

Harvest in May and June when the weather is fair and warm. Take a knife to the base of every spear and make a clean cut. We recommend you start harvesting in the third year to give your plants time to establish and give you maximum spears in subsequent years.

In year three cut spears for three-five weeks only then leave spears after to develop into ferns. In following years you can afford to cut spears for an eight week period.

We recommend you plant crowns in free draining soil with added farmyard manure like J Arthur Bowers Organic Farm Manure so you have the perfect soil texture and structure for your asparagus crowns to thrive- plant in full sun where possible.
