Mary Washington
Asparagus officinalis

After its release in 1919, 'Mary Washington' became the most popular standard asparagus variety grown. Although no longer used in commercial production, 'Mary Washington' is a parent of many of the modern hybrid varieties.

'Mary Washington' asparagus was bred by Dr. J. B. Norton of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and was one of his releases in the "Washington line" of asparagus varieties. Other varieties included 'Martha Washington' and 'Waltham Washington' but it was this variety, 'Mary Washington' that offered more uniform size, as well as resistance to asparagus rust.
