Plant Features

Jersey Giant Asparagus Crowns produce tender, flavorful spears with a higher tolerance of colder climates and they mature 7 to 10 days earlier than other varieties. Known to be the highest yielding plants, they are extremely adaptable. This mostly all-male variety will outperform many other varieties, produces very few berries, and has excellent disease resistance. Ready for some fresh asparagus? Many of our 2-3 year old sized crowns will produce harvestable spears the same year you plant them! Included with each order is our all-natural phosphate fertilizer that will get your asparagus crowns growing quickly.

Companion Planting: BasilParsleyTomatoes

Jersey Giant Asparagus Plant Care Instructions: Spears can be harvested once they are as thick as a pencil. Stop harvesting as the spears become tough and the tops start opening. Leave them grow and fern out for the rest of the year. They can be cut back to the ground after the first hard frost, or it can be done in early spring before the new growth starts.

Jersey Asparagus

Came moist and well packaged

Jersey Giant

These are truly giants. I bought some last year and harvested lightly this year. Those are about 5 feet tall because I am letting them frond

Healthy looking start

Just planted 40 of these Jersey Giant beauties last week and seeing some sprouts already. Roots and nodes looked very healthy upon delivery. Will have to wait a couple of years before we can start harvesting, but I think they will be worth the wait.

From Jackie | May 03, 2016

Honestly, I couldn't be happier!!

The Jersey Giant crowns arrived strong and healthy. I followed the instructions that came with the plants, soaking them and getting them in the ground immediately. I wasn't expecting to see anything so I didn't check on them for a few days. Imagine my surprise when I happened to look over and notice I already had asparagus growing!! Over a week has passed now and I do believe I could be enjoying just a bit in a few mores days!! I won't of course. Even though I will feel like the cookie monster waiting on his precious cookies to bake, apparently it's a bad idea to harvest any the first year.

Asparagus and Great Service

Our first order of asparagus arrived in what seemed to be 2 days after ordering. It looked so good, we immediately ordered another 40 plants they look great as well. The first order is already sending up shoots and we'll have more than we can ever eat in the years to come. Your website is outstanding, service was fast, product was terrific and I highly recommend your Company. I'll be sharing your site with lots of other gardeners.

Jersey Giant Asparagus

Very happy with packaging and delivery. Just wished the asparagus came in smaller portions - 2 crowns may be a bit much for my small garden, and I am not sure what to to do with the extras without giving them away. I guess it's time to search the internet.

The order came promptly and is very healthy. I've planted them and can't wait for them to sprout. I live at Lake Tahoe around 6500ft. I'll send Pictures of my garden this summer when it's in bloom
