Purple Asparagus: Asparagi Viola

Like clockwork my purple asparagus are now coming up. I will let these grow and fern out until next season. The longer you let asparagus grow and fern out the better results you'll get. As their root systems become stronger you'll get more production out of the plant. It's best to let them fern out for at least three years. I can't resist the temptation so I may break a spear off when I get home.

  1. Oh man, it would be hard to resist such beautiful asparagus!

    (Love the zombie figs...I've always been charmed by the idea of old Italian men in Brooklyn burying their fig trees for the winter.)
