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.

Harvest asparagus by snapping 7 to 9 inch 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. Store in the refrigerator at 38 to 40 degrees F. Asparagus will keep for 1 to 2 weeks with little loss of quality.

We purchased 25 - 2 year old crowns and planted them in a fresh bed. So far we have 17 plants showing up. Not too bad for a start; we've only had them in the ground for about 2 weeks. We will have to see if the others come up! I will change my rating if the others come up and make it a five star!

I was just thumbing through the web & came across the price for these purple asparagus crowns. I had some "other" crowns already in the ground already coming up. They were marked for zone 10 at half the price of the first crowns coming from Northern Cal.
