Asparagus Plants

Jersey Asparagus cultivars are tender and mouth-watering—and taste nothing like the bland, stringy spears found in supermarkets. Once you've tried them, you will discover why we only offer Jersey asparagus crowns for sale!


The Advantages of Jersey Hybrids:

  • High Yields - Jersey Hybrid Asparagus plants have consistently produced the highest yields; up to four times greater than the older male/female varieties.
  • Disease Tolerance - Jersey Hybrid Asparagus varieties were specially bred for their high tolerance to the most common asparagus diseases: Fusarium crown rot, Fusarium root rot, Rust and Cercospera.
  • Less Weeding - Our mostly male asparagus plants produce very few berries, which means much less weeding.

Because asparagus beds can produce spears for 15 to 30 years, it should be planted at the edge or end of the garden. The amount of asparagus you grow depends upon the amount of people you will be feeding and whether it will be eaten fresh, frozen or canned. Normally 10 crowns will provide one person with fresh asparagus for the season. Plant 20 asparagus crowns per person if you are planning on freezing or canning the spears.
