Asparagus Erasmus

  • Asparagus Erasmus is a new purple variety that is an all-male variety that does not set seed and can be eaten uncooked The first 100% male purple asparagus in the world. Sweet taste, to be eaten raw or stir-fried. A unique purple 100% male hybrid variety. Excellent quality spears with good tip closure and high yield. Erasmus is the world's first 100% male purple variety. It has excellent shape, uniformity, and quality spears with intense purple colour. It is an early variety with very high overall yields. It has excellent tip closure and is a very vigorous variety. To avoid lodging, Erasmus must be ridged up to increase the longevity of the crop. Compared to mixed flowering purple varieties it is much stronger and less likely to snap if lodging does occur. Recommended planting density: 5-6 plants per meter due to its sweet flavour and tender bite, Erasmus is an excellent variety to be used fresh and unpeeled in salads, stir fry’s, and on the barbeque. It is best left uncooked in order to keep the bold purple colour, which can be lost during the cooking process
The arrival of the asparagus Erasmus crowns in their packaging the crowns were supplied by a seed company called The Organic Cataloge which I have purchased from before, the crowns were well packed and in a very healthy condition
