Asparagus 'Millennium'+'Eclipse' 10 XL crowns
We are offering 5 crowns of Millenium(early) and 5 crowns of Eclipse(mid). These two varieties will extend your harvest window. Info on each variety is listed below.
Millennium and Eclipse were both developed at the Univ. of Guelph, Canada, and have become a major contributor to the Ontario asparagus industry. Both varieties have high spear count.
Millennium is a mid-late season hybrid that thrives in temperate and cool growing environments. Unrivaled longevity in field situations. Yields are high with a significant proportion of production later in the season. Thought to be best adapted to heavier soils, but results from growers indicate success with a wide range of soil types. Including sandy soil.
Eclipse is an early-mid season hybrid that performs at its best in temperate and cool growing regions. Spear quality is exceptional with a diameter of medium-large thickness. Trials of Guelph Eclipse show that it is a precocious hybrid, providing high yields in the first years of harvest. Initially bred to produce green asparagus, Guelph Eclipse is also now being used for white spear production
Our crowns are 100% male. Plants will produce a light harvest in the 2nd year, a larger harvest the 3rd year, and a full harvest in subsequent years.
How many do you need to feed your family? It depends on how many people in your family like asparagus. 5-10 plants per person is a general rule of thumb.
