Mary Washington Improved Asparagus

Improved Yields from an Old Fashioned Favorite

The best of the open-pollinated varieties. Produces higher yields with tighter tips than the original Mary Washington; same outstanding flavor. Not high-heat tolerant, so be sure to cut spears on the short side. At temperatures over 70°F, taller spears may become tough and woody. For each offer, get 10 plants.
