Asparagus Vittorio – the new, versatile asparagus for succulent grass-green or snow-white spears, as you desire.

There are so many top chefs that are fans of freshly home-grown asparagus and it’s not surprising seeing as asparagus is a reliable perennial – putting up more and more spears each year.

Vittoria is a great vegetable to grow, as you get to choose white spears or green spears to suit your tastes.

Vittorio is a robust male hybrid variety that has a naturally strong and vigorous growth habit. Having been bred to resist disease it’s a reliable variety that has a particularly early season.

Expect to harvest straight, smooth spears that are low in tough fibers and have tight, closed tips for lovely asparagus salads or garnishes for summer meals.

If you want extra-tender snow-white spears simply mound the soil up around them. In early summer, remove the mounded- soil and harvest the blanched spears. 

Tips for superior spears

Simply plant four to five crowns per lineal metre, and 30cm (12in) apart if planting double rows.

For handsome harvests in the second and subsequent years, keep cropping in the first year to a minimum.
