Easy to grow!


I planted three crowns a little late at the end of May. Sporadic watering and they put out leaves. The August Monsoon season brought us 5.5" of rain, and these exploded. Very pleased with vigor and flavor of small sample spear. Excellent plants. Poor early performance purely human gardener's fault!
