Plant Features

Jersey Knight Asparagus Crowns produce tender, delicious stalks with the best spear quality. The tips will stay tight past harvest. Because it is mostly an all-male variety, there are very few berries. It is a mid-season producer that grows well in warmer climates. Jersey Knight offers resistance to diseases such as root rot, rust and fusarium. 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, along with detailed planting instructions.

Asparagus Crowns Companion Plants: Basil, Parsley, Tomatoes

Jersey Knight 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.

Healthy plant

Received the asparagus in excellent condition.It's a joy to work with this company

From Patricia | June 07, 2021


Anemic Asparagus Plants

I have ordered asparagus plants from several other online/mail order companies over the past 20 years always receiving pretty nice plants. These, however, were the tiniest, most pitiful looking ones I have ever gotten. I could have gotten much nicer ones for less money at my local farm store. Extremely disappointed!

William, we are sorry to hear the plants sent to you were not up to our standards. Please send us an email so we can get you some replacement plants headed your direction. GrowJoy

knight stalks

The plants are in a little dry condition and one only had one stalk left with it but I decided to stay with it because it was in good condition to see if it would out this my first time growing this type of plant will see if they hold on for the years and produce many stalks of asparagus to come.

Jersey Knight Asparagus Crowns

My asparagus crowns arrived apparently at the right time. I followed the planting instructions and was quite surprised to find the quantity was more than ordered. I guess they thought the extras were in case they didn't arrive safely. Well I won't tell how many extras I got, as I wouldn't want to get any body in trouble. But I will say I got 100% survival rate. Thank you very much.

Asparagus crowns

I ordered the crowns online, to be shipped USPS. They arrived in a timely manner, in perfect condition, with detailed instructions. I couldn't be more pleased. Will most certainly use this company in the future.

Asperagus plants

Super healthy plants, directions how to plant, and an awesome experience.

From Jeffery | May 08, 2014


Asparagus growing strong

Very fast delivery and I received the Asparagus crowns in great shape. They were packaged very well and looked great. Got them planted in about a week of when I bought them.I am a very happy customer and will definitely use GrowJoy for all my garden purchases. I live in a town that doesn't offer all the vegetable choices that they do on their website. So I am very satisfied that I can grow things that aren't dictated by what my local gardens decide to sell.

From Jamie | July 11, 2013


Nice looking Asparagus!

Thank you for the speedy delivery. They are in the ground and we are looking forward to a healthy crop next year!

Good Business = GrowJoy

My order of asparagus came quickly. The crowns looked to be very good. Time will tell, but I am expecting a successful asparagus patch in the years to come.

We were impressed with the healthy asparagus crowns received. Our order arrived promptly, packaged well, and came with detailed planting and care instructions. Within 3-5 days we had beautiful healthy plant growth. Looking forward to the harvest...and future purchases!

Great Shipping

AWESOME! We received our shipment exactly when you said. Now I can't wait to brag to the neighbors about my garden. Everyone will know where we got our asparagus plants!

From anonymous | May 09, 2013


Asparagus is Already above ground!

After patiently waiting for our asparagus plants to arrive, we followed the instructions that came with the plants... Now, less than a week later, the plants show they have accepted their new location well. With great communication and easy ordering, we will buy from GrowJoy again!

From Nena | May 07, 2013


Growing Better Food

I purchased these plants to start a bed of asparagus. They arrived at the proper time for planting and were in excellent condition. The instructions for planting were concise and well written. Will return to GrowJoy for other gardening needs.

Great Experience

I'm always skeptical about online garden orders. This experience was great. The Jersey Knight Asparagus plants were received timely, in great condition, as described. They are growing vigorously!

From Wesley | June 27, 2012


Wow

Never planted asparagus before ,, they are just growing wild .. I LOVE 'EM .. looking forward to many years of harvest .. a shame you're sold out until next year.

From Ruben | June 26, 2012


Wow!

I had never planted asparagus before and had no idea what the crowns would look like. It was a surprise to see these lovely roots. I was unable to plant them for two weeks, but finally got them in the ground and in no time at all (maybe two weeks?) they began to sprout lovely, ferny plants, and many tiny asparagus stalks are coming up, much to my excitement and amazement. They seem to grow overnight when it rains. I can hardly wait for the "light" harvest a year from now, and look forward to years of asparagus to come. I had six extra plants, so I gave them to a next-door neighbor who planted them even later than I did, but those plants are also thriving! I am delighted with the beginning - and with the great quality of the Jersey Knight male hybrids you shipped me!
