    Default Asparagus variety?

    I've prepared an asparagus bed and now need to send for the crowns.
    I'd like a mid size spear ( not pencil skinny but not jumbo) not the purple variety
    I thought maybe ...Pacific.
    Can any one recommend. I thought one variety would suffice. Do I need more? It's for an allotment an other growers are near by.
    Thanks all.

    The green ones I have are Mondeo. Some spears are thinner and some thicker but none are full on jumbo.

    It's my 1st year with Asparagus & am waiting delivery of Pacific 2000, Ariane & Millennium. Sorry that doesn't answer your question.

    It is helpful Bigmally as it tells me the choice of a seasoned gardener! I may just copy you.

    BM, that is exactly the same Deal I ordered almost 4 years ago, and can actually say hand on heart, you will definitely not be disappointed!

    Although patience and a little TLC as to be awarded!

    Cheers Deano. Something to look forward to then.

    Just make sure you incorporate hugging's and hugging's of grit in your prepared beds, when you think you have enough, put a little more in!
