Millennium asparagus, developed by Professor David Wolyn, University 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, tender spears and 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.
Asparagus plants produce a light harvest in the 2nd year, a larger harvest in the 3rd year, and a full harvest in subsequent years.
