Purple Passion

IMG_3394Our asparagus varieties are Purple Passion and Jersey Knight. The Jersies are putting up more shoots per plant, but the Purple spears are significantly bigger. They look quite spectacular; and, as advertised, they do indeed taste sweeter than the green variety.

We don’t have quite enough plants to make a full meal, but we enjoy the few spears we get all the more. Freshly picked, they’re both crisp and tender, and very tasty.
