Asparagus 'Jersey Giant' #1 Bare Root Bundle - 5 roots per bundle - $12.00

A superior all-male hybrid that consistently yields 2-3 times more spears than 'Mary Washington'. It is also resistant to rust, fusarium, and crown and root rot. Jersey Giant is the most winter hardy of all the Jersey hybrids and it is widely adapted to temperate and cool climates. It produces medium to large (7-9"), green spears with purple bracts. They are often used for processing and for fresh market. Asparagus is one of the more permanent vegetable crops in a garden. It typically produces for 10-15 years.

It takes about three years for plants to mature enough for harvesting. Prior to that plants should be allowed to grow and feed themselves.

In the third year, begin harvesting spears that are finger-sized and about 8" long.
