Purple Passion is a unique asparagus variety especially suited to the asparagus enthusiast, whether home gardener or commercial grower. Its special, attractive purple color, flavor and tenderness distinguish this variety from others. This variety has a 20% higher sugar content and is often eaten raw. Provides excellent purple color if added to salads raw, but turns green when cooked. Some upscale restaurants garnish salads with Purple Passion. When cooked, the sweetness gives this asparagus a mild, nutty flavor. In addition, our trials indicate Purple Passion has productive yields. For best performance, plant spacing for Purple Passion is 6-8 inches apart in the row instead of the usual 12-inch spacing. Purple Passion is an excellent addition to any asparagus planting.
