HEIRLOOM. Light cuttings in 2 years; regular cuttings thereafter.
Asparagus is a perennial vegetable, so you just plant them once and enjoy season after season of succulent spears. Rooted plants are great for fall and should be planted 4-6 weeks before first fall frost. In 2 years, you'll have a light crop and a regular crop thereafter. Long after harvest, the graceful, feathery green foliage is still attractive.
