Description

UC 72 Asparagus

UC 72 Asparagus, Mary Washington UC 72 or Mary's Granddaughter was developed at UC Davis for better production and tolerance to Fusarium Wilt. Also tolerates heat and drought better than other varieties. Yields heavy dark green spears with fairly compact heads.

Growing Tip

Asparagus is best adapted to sandy soils in moderate climates. For best production, plants prefer a deeply dug, well-prepared bed, with lots of organic matter. Beds should be kept moist but not wet when spears are producing. Keep well weeded, as weed pressure will lower yields. Plants usually take 2 to 3 years to come to full production but can bear for 10 to 15 years.
