Any asparagus can be blanched while it's developing to keep it white. Most growers pile sand or other material around the spears as they grow to exclude light and keep the spears white. Burpee carries Jersey Giant, Mary Washington, and UC 157 Asparagus crowns. You can order toll-free (800) 888-1447, or online at:
