Plant Features

looking for a reliable and high-yielding asparagus variety, Grande F1 offers an exceptional choice. This early to mid-season variety is specially designed for warm to hot climates, ensuring a robust and early start to your asparagus season. What sets Grande F1 apart is its remarkable growth rate and high yield, outshining other popular varieties in terms of both size and production capacity.

One of the most striking features of Grande F1 is its spear quality. You can expect medium-large to large spears, characterized by a deep green color with just a hint of purple on the bud scales, tips, and butt. These spears are not only attractive but also boast very tight heads, giving them a smooth and appealing appearance. This feature is particularly maintained even under warm to hot conditions, a testament to the variety's adaptability.

Grande F1 is versatile enough to be used for both green and white asparagus production, making it a great choice regardless of your preference. For gardeners concerned about diseases, this variety offers peace of mind. It shows remarkable resistance to common asparagus diseases such as fusarium, rust, and blight, and is also free of Asparagus Latent Virus race 2. Additionally, growing Grande F1 under plastic tunnels can help prevent Phomopsis asp, further ensuring the health and quality of your crop.

Not only is Grande F1 asparagus ideal for early and prolonged harvest, but it also produces large, tender spears that are slow to fern out or become fibrous, even when temperatures rise above 70 degrees. This quality ensures that you can enjoy delicious, tender asparagus spears throughout the season. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting out, Grande F1 asparagus seeds are an excellent choice for anyone looking to enjoy a bountiful, high-quality asparagus harvest in their own backyard. Ready for some fresh asparagus? Many of our 2 - 3 year-old sized crowns will produce harvestable spears the same year you plant them! 

Included with each order is our all-natural phosphate fertilizer that will get your asparagus crowns growing quickly, along with detailed planting instructions.

Asparagus Plant Care Instructions: Spears can be harvested once they are as thick as a pencil. Stop harvesting as the spears become tough and the tops start opening. Leave them grow and fern out for the rest of the year. They can be cut back to the ground after the first hard frost, or it can be done in early spring before the new growth starts.
