Heirloom-pre 1885. This is the type that blanches to a yellowish gold by fall. Stalks are close to 2’ tall. Flavor and texture are excellent, however, this variety does require quite a long growing season.
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75ºF.
Seed Sowing Depth: 1/8-1/4" deep
Sowing Indoors:Start 10-12 weeks before the last frost. Soaking seeds overnight aids germination. Keep soil moist and temperatures at 70-75ºF. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant after last frost, 8-12” apart.
Sowing Outdoors:Not recommended, especially in northern areas
Harvest: Stalks over 8-10”, from the outside first. Harvest entire plant late summer through the fall.
Tips: Needs fertile soil and consistent moisture throughout the entire season for optimum growth. Add compost to the planting area and fertilize regularly, mulch, and keep moist.
