The Pacific Challenger Asparagus seed variety is a green variety with a high tolerance to phytophthora, a plant diesase associated with wet cold soil or frost damage. This is a very unique trait among current asparagus hybrids. Its spears are of excellent quality and are ideal for the fresh market. Ideal for planting when soil temperatures rise in spring. Planting into soil that contains dolomite lime fertiliser is recommended to help correct the soil pH level for ultimate growth.
Very well suited for local fresh or process markets.
