Three new green asparagus cultivars; Apollo, Atlas and Grande and one purple cultivar, Purple Passion



Acta Horticulturae 415: 59-65



ISSN/ISBN: 0567-7572

In 1984 the initial crosses resulting in the cultivars Apollo, Atlas and Grande were made with a view to improving yield, quality and horticultural characteristics of new asparagus cultivars. The female parents were selected from previously adapted cultivars in California with high yields and superior spear quality. The common male parent of these cultivars was selected due to its genetic background (eastern USA) and its adaptability to the central California asparagus production area.
