Asparagus 'Pacific Purple' (pack of 10 crowns)
Bred in New Zealand, this variety produces heavy yields of purple spears that are sweeter, more tender and even richer in antioxidants than green asparagus. They have a very low fibre content meaning that almost the entire spear is free of the tough fibre normally found on the bottom of green varieties. This means that they are ideal eaten raw and added to fresh salads. They are also delicious when cooked.
Price includes p&p to *mainland U.K.
