Eros is a new Italian male hybrid which can be used for white and green production. Its yield is good and the quality of the stems is stable. The variety is mid-early.
When harvested as green the stems show a red/purple color just above soil level. The tip stays closed even under warmer conditions. When harvested as white asparagus you will note the thin skin of the stems.
Eros is very resistant against rust ( Puccinia Asparagii)
