Asparagus Connover's Colossal


In a nutshell....

Distinctive for its fat, one-and-a-half-inch-thick stems, Asparagus 'Connover’s Colossal' was developed by S. B. Connover, a produce commission merchant in New York’s old West Washington Market. 100 seeds per pack


Asparagus Connover’s Colossal is an old, open-pollinated variety which is particularly reliable in the Irish climate, and has a very good flavour. Planted as 2 year-old crowns, they can start to be harvested after 2 years – and it’s worth the wait!  When fully mature, asparagus plants will produce about 10 spears a year over 8 weeks, and will last for 15-20 years. Asparagus Connover’s Colossal does best on light soils; if growing on heavy soils, plant in a raised bed. Protect the emerging spears from slugs.

Quantity: 100 seeds per pack
