This is an excellent Asparagus for the impatient gardener.
Spears are usually produced from seed struck plants in the second year and as it generally likes to shoot early in the season, it is a very appealing vegetable to start from seed.
Argenteuil is an old heirloom variety and is popular throughout most of Europe where it is often the only variety available.
Blanching produces a very clean, white spear that is particularly apetizing.
Germination is usually quick and the seed is viable for years.
Argenteuil is also very heat tolerant, making it ideal for most Australian gardens.
