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 our 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 our grower survey indicate success with a wide range of soil types.  We recommend trials under your conditions to assess its performance.

Came up super fast, within a week most crowns were growing. With many spears on most crowns, in the first year. Surprised how well got started with our sandy gravel soil.

Roots were very healthy and could be passed for 2 year old! I
Planted this variety in central Michigan over 10 years ago in very heavy soil, planted over old asparagus field, Spears are medium to large, good production over 10 years still producing great, out lasted Jersey Supreme in heavy soil 2 to 1 . I highly recommend in replant or heavy clay type soil.

I highly recommend Nourse Farms great products! Great service!
