What is the slowest growing vegetable?



  1. 0 Votes

    It looks like asparagus may be the slowest growing vegetable, as it takes up to three years to fully mature and be ready for consumption. It is generally advised that gardeners hoping to grow asparagus start with one-year-old starts rather than from seed, as cultivating asparagus can be extremely difficult and time consuming. It is suggested that gardeners contact a crown grower, who will be knowledgeable enough to care for each asparagus “crown” or root system as it develops, to obtain asparagus starts.

    Cauliflower is the slowest growing member of the cabbage family, but doesn’t look like they have anything on asparagus!
