California Seed Production
We initiated production of the CAST varieties in a new seed block in California in 2009, with our first seed harvest taking place fall 2012. We are the exclusive producer of Atlas F1, Apollo F1, Grande F1, and Purple Passion, as well as UC157 F1. Also coming soon from our California seed block is WB-215 F1, expected in the fall of 2014! All seed from California is certified by the California Crop Improvement Association.
Jersey Seed Production
In our seed blocks in Washington State we produce the Jersey male hybrids Jersey Giant F1, Jersey Knight F1 and Jersey Supreme F1. These well known and long term tested varieties provide asparagus growers with excellent value and less risk.
Our family has been involved in almost all aspects of asparagus production since the early 1980s. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience to provide our customers, and we are well known for our customer service. We look forward to working with you to provide high quality, tried and true asparagus seed varieties.
