Asparagus UC 157
Anyone have experience with growing Asparagus UC 157 in the Valley? I just bought some. This is the description of it, but we know some plants won't handle the heat and now the freezing cold in the winter:
Robust plant that is the standard for quality in the marketplace
"FarmerÃ¯Â¿Â½s Favorite" - a hybrid of M120 & F109 (NOT Genetically Modified), developed at UC Riverside. Known for very high yield, useful variety that is suitable to growth in warmer areas with mild winters. Smooth green spears, tight tipped, non stringy. The plant has tall feathery, graceful stems. Plants may take up to 2 to 3 years to come to full production but can bear for 10 to 15 years.
