Ariane F1 Seeds
This first-class asparagus produces tall, slender, high quality spears with tight green buds. Particularly delicious steamed, stir-fried or sauted and topped with butter.
From Dobies Price: £2.49 More Information & To Buy
An easy to grow, unusual vegetable with a unique gourmet flavour. A hint of asparagus - perhaps? Goes with virtually any dish. Cook whole at 3cm (1in) long, preferably by steaming, and serve with a little melted butter. No flavouring should be used as this will destroy its own delicious taste. Asparagus Pea can also be used in the flower border as attractive ground cover.
