How to use an Asparagus Knife
Use the Asparagus Knife to cut the asparagus spears when they are 4 to 10 inches long. To prevent the asparagus spears from becoming fibrous, harvest at least every other day.
For best results
- Use the Asparagus Knife and cut the spears 1 to 2 inches below the soil level.
- Never cut the asparagus spears within 2 inches of the crown, to avoid damaging to the developed buds.
- Never cut the asparagus spears above the ground and allow the stubs to remain.
- Discontinue harvesting when the diameter of the asparagus spears becomes less than 3/8 of an inch.
