High yielding. Harvest 2-3 years. Good flavor
Millennium asparagus, developed by Prof. David Wolyn, Univ. of Guelph, Canada, has become a major contributor to the Ontario asparagus industry. Named "Seed of the Year" in 2005 at the Royal Winter Fair in toronto. In Nourse's trial, Millennium has been productive, with high quality spears, tender, and has good flavor. Thought to be best adapted to heavier soils, but results from Nourse's grower survey indicate success with a wide range of soil types.
Best in Zones: 3 - 8 Freezing Quality: Excellent Age: 1 year roots
We recommend a soil pH level of 7.0 - 7.2 for asparagus plants.
Asparagus plants produce a light harvest in the 2nd year, a larger harvest the 3rd year, and a full harvest in subsequent years.
