DESCRIPTION

A superior Mary Washington variety that produces earlier, larger and more uniform yields of dark green spears with fairly compact heads. Spears are 6-12" long and ½" in diameter. More heat and drought tolerant than other varieties. May take 2-3 yrs to reach full production but can bear for 15-20 yrs. Prefers full sun. Excellent choice for market growers and home gardeners.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

PERENNIAL

Perennial plants live for more than two years. They return year after year and continue growing until they reach maturity, which varies by plant but averages three to five years.
