Description

Asparagus is a long-lived perennial vegetable crop that is enjoyed by many gardeners. It can be productive for 20 or more years if given proper care. Select the new all-male hybrid asparagus varieties such as Jersey Giant, and Jersey Knight. These varieties produce spears only on male plants. Seeds produced on female plants fall to the ground and become a seedling weed problem in the garden. Female plants also have to expend more energy to produce the seeds that decreases the yields of asparagus spears on female plants. The all-male hybrids out-yield the old Mary Washington varieties by 3 to 1.

Harvest asparagus by snapping 7"-9" spears with tight tips. There is no need to cut asparagus below the soil with a knife. This may injure other buds on the crown that will send up new spears. The small stub that is left in the soil after snapping, dries up and disintegrates. A new spear does not come up at the same spot, but comes up from another bud that enlarges on another part of the crown.

Asparagus is very perishable and should be harvested in the morning when air temperatures are cool. After picking, immerse the spears in ice-cold water to remove the heat; then drain the water and place the spears in plastic bags.

It is my first time growing asparagus. I was not sure what to expect but the package was delivered quickly and the roots looked really healthy. I prepared the bed and planted most of them a couple of days after receiving the package. I had 100 percent success because every root I planted came up. They look really great. I am looking forward to having fresh asparagus next spring.

Making My Bed and Living With It!

I have no past experience with Asparagus and was not even sure if it would grow in Central Florida. I bought a 25 pack of 2 yr old bare roots and studied how to make the bed. I got them planted and within a week the first shoots began to appear. After one month 95% of the roots have taken hold and I have shoots over a foot tall already. Will let them strengthen this year and look for a feast next year. I am very pleased with the product and the service I received.

I purchased Jersey Giant Bare Root and Jersey Knight Bare Root the root crowns came in separate bags shipped one FedEx bag and were not labeled so I cannot tell which one is which. I guess I'll figure that out when they start growing. The crowns are large to medium to small a variety of 25 crowns in each bag. Hope everyone there is feeling better now with spring here. thanks ron

Ordered the crowns on a Thursday and received them the next Wednesday. Crowns were fresh and good sized in excellent shape. I would definitely deal with growers solutions again.

Purchased 25 2yr old crowns and delivery was prompt. 80% average in size, 10% large and 10% on the smaller side. Two weeks in so far and all but four has stems emerging. Others are growing, but just not through dirt yet. Planting a 2yr crown will be a huge benefit come next spring. Can't beat the price for what you get.
