The Asparagus 'Purple Passion' have sweet and tender spears and a higher sugar content than green asparagus making this a favorite of the home gardener. The deep burgundy color and tender texture is almost completely stringless (young spears are often eaten raw). Zones 4-9.
The best time to set Asparagus 'Purple Passion' roots is from April 10 to May 20. Roots are set 12-14" apart in a trench 6-8" below ground level in rows 4-5' apart. Initially covered with 2" of soil with the remainder of the trench being gradually filled throughout the rest of the year. Light cutting is possible the year after the bed is established. Take care in locating this planting as it could last a lifetime. Large two-year-old roots.
