04507 - Purple Sweet Asparagus Roots
asparagus officianalis
purple passion

Deep burgundy spears are very thick with no fibrous strings so the entire spear can be used. Flavor is unique, sweeter than green asparagus, with a mild, nutty taste. A delicacy when cooked and so tender it's often eaten raw. Very hardy and productive. Turns green when cooked.
