Description
Mary Washington Asparagus Heirloom Seeds
 
Mary Washington Asparagus is a long-lived perennial,
ready for harvest in the second or third year after planting.
Tender, green spears grow abundantly
and give you that old fashioned asparagus flavor.
 A well established bed of Mary Washington
 will reward you for years to come.
 
Days To Maturity: 2-3 years
 
Approximately 40 seeds per packet.
 
Botanical Name: Asparagus officinalis.
 
Planting:
 
Easy to start from seed.
 Start in containers
and transplant to permanent location.
 Asparagus requires a cold dormancy
 so it performs much better north of zone 7.
 Can be grown as far north as zone 4.
Soak the seeds for 48 hours prior to planting.
 Plant the seeds in a temporary bed
or in flats and transplant to a
 permanent location when the seedlings
 are big enough to be handled.
Grow them in fertile,
 weed free soil and add
composted manure each spring.
Mary Washington Heirloom Asparagus
 is a
heavy feeder.
 Pick lightly the third year and normally thereafter.
 
Saving Mary Washington Asparagus Heirloom Seeds
 
Look at the asparagus plants carefully
 for the growth of tiny red berries,
 which contain the seeds.
 Not all of the plants will produce red berries,
just the female plants.
 Although berry development differs by variety,
most berries appear in mid- to late summer
Pick off the tiny red berries with your fingers
 by snapping them off the asparagus plant.
Place some kind of a mesh kitchen strainer over a bowl
 and put the red asparagus berries into the strainer.
Press down on the berries with your fingers to
 separate out the inner seeds from the outer red pulp.
 Each red berry contains six to eight tiny black seeds.
 The black seeds will fall through the strainer,
while the pulp will not.
 It's fine if some pulp gets through the strainer.
Fill another bowl with clean water and put
the black seeds from the first bowl into the second bowl,
using your hands.
Try not to scoop up any pulp as
you transfer the seeds.
 Repeat this process of rinsing in water
 until no more pulp remains on the seeds.
Scoop the seeds out of the water,
using your hand, and spread them in an
even layer on a paper towel.
 Allow the seeds to dry for two to three days.
Put your seeds into a paper envelope.
Write what kind of asparagus
on the outside of the envelope.
Reward Points 2 points will be rewarded to you when you buy this item.
