Backlim – RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. This asparagus is a delicious flavour, good yields, and disease resistance. A late variety. Harvest April-June. Height 100-150cm (39-59″); spread 50-60cm (20-24″).
Guelph Millennium – This is a late-season variety, bred in Canada. This asparagus plant is at its best in the UK during the month of June. Now considered to be the best late-season cultivar, it’s an All-Male hybrid, boasting excellent spear and head quality, combined with fantastic yield.
Gijnlim – A consistent top performer in recent trials, out-yielding others by up to 25%. It’s early too, giving the first succulent tasty spears in mid to late April and continuing to crop heavily until mid-June. It is an ‘all-male’ hybrid, forming no seeds which means all its energies go into spear production. Height 100-150cm (39-59″).
