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.

Received my roots 3 days later than expected (probably Covid mailing delay!). I was working the day they arrived however my husband placed them in water and we planted them after I arrived home (at midnight). (RN in a local ER). Thus far they have grown and are doing wonderful! We will see what the next few (many) years produce!

Successful first time asparagus planting

Had been meaning to put in asparagus. Finally got up the nerve, as it seemed to be an intimidating process. I had researched best plants for my area and so looked for Jersey Giants. Growers Solution had 2 year crowns. Placing the order was easy. Received nice plump crowns. I did have to refrigerate them for over a week before I was ready to plant, but no problem. Prepped soil with amendments and organic materials, made soil humps for the crowns to rest on, covered with soil, watered, and waited. All plants now have sent up shoots. Now to finish covering with soil over the summer and then wait 2 years for harvest!
