Large-diameter spears have 20% more sugars and emerge later than green varieties. These vitamin-rich spears are so tender, you can eat them right out of your garden. Mild flavor and low fiber content with a creamy green, tender interior make Purple Passion a chef's favorite. Spears turn green when cooked. Cut before spear exceeds 5".
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
