The Seed Savers Exchange - This variety’s prolific plants produce large, green stalks that are crunchy, juicy, and slightly sweet when eaten raw. When plants are started from seeds, expect about 10 stalks per plant the first year and up to 15 stalks per plant by the next; asparagus typically needs to grow three or more years before the patch is robust enough to harvest. Reportedly rust-resistant, this asparagus is named for Dr. S. Culver Williams of Rose Valley, Pennsylvania, who stewarded it with his wife, Barbara, for at least 40 years. Organic
