Description

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

  • Perennial crop
  • Early-harvests
  • Green or white spears to your tastes
  • Disease tolerant

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-fibres 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.
