Asparagus Purple Passion question
Having only recently discovered the joy of asparagus, I would like to plant some this Spring. I will only have room for a smaller planting, limited to one variety.
Several times this past season, we enjoyed broiled green asparagus. As I look into the best variety for the home gardener to plant, I see rave reviews for Purple Passion. However, most reviews describe it as "best raw" and having a "nutty flavor" when cooked.
Not planning on incorporating raw asparagus into my diet---since I am so enthralled with it broiled---I am concerned that I may not appreciate a "nutty" flavor.
Not sure whether to play it safe and go with a green variety such as Jersey Knight or not. Any help here? :-)
