Welcome to Aspara
There's no better place for asparagus breeding
On the deep coastal sands bordering the Pacific Ocean we produce asparagus seed for export to countries all over the world.
Aspara Pacific Ltd is New Zealand's only asparagus breeder and plays a key role in the New Zealand seed potato industry as a main supplier of high health stock.
The hot dry summers of the Canterbury Plains in the South Island of New Zealand provide an ideal climate for the production of asparagus seed in strict isolation from other areas of asparagus production.
Aspara Pacific has pioneered the production of High Health asparagus crowns. Using the latest machinery from Europe, the best quality asparagus crowns are supplied to growers throughout New Zealand.
"Free of many of the diseases that affect asparagus production in other countries, New Zealand is an ideal environment in which to produce high quality asparagus seed."
