AS106A - UC157 F2
UC157 F2 asparagus seeds are outstanding for mild climate areas. This variety has earlier production and heavier total yields than some of the older commercial varieties. Three to five dark green spears are produced from each mature crown. The spears are 1.5 to 2cm (1/2 to 3/4") in diameter, with light bracts. It has moderate tolerance to fusarium root rot. Growing asparagus from seeds is an exercise in patience, but well worth the effort because garden fresh asparagus contains a natural sweetness and depth of flavour that is incomparable.

How To Grow
Planting asparagus seeds is an exercise in patience, but one of the most rewarding of all garden tasks. Asparagus Seeds germinate slowly, and the crowns take three seasons before they can handle being harvested. However the grower’s patience is generously rewarded by early season harvests of asparagus with a flavour you will not find on store shelves anywhere. You will wish you had planted a bigger asparagus bed!
