Mary Washington Asparagus is a trusted, reliable variety introduced in 1949 that produces vigorous, medium green, mouth-watering spears that are excellent fresh or quite suitable for freezing. It is an heirloom vegetable that is one of the older and more common asparagus varieties, with good resistance to asparagus rust and wilt.

When fully established, asparagus plants can produce yields for 20 years or more. Mary Washington Asparagus Seeds 1100 contains 50 seeds/gram for planting. Your asparagus seeds may be started indoors for one year, before being transplanted to a garden bed with deep, well-composted soil. To keep them growing well, you should mulch your plants with composted material each spring — and you will be enjoying delicious asparagus spears for years to come!
