Jersey Giant Roots
A highly productive and improved variety that produces an early bounty of tender and delicious spears. This easy-to-grow hardy asparagus boasts superiior disease resistance to Rust and Crown Root Rot. 5 roots/package. All male hybrid variety.
Field-grown roots should be planted as soon as the soil can be worked in a 25cm (10") deep trench enriched with compost or manure. Set each crown upon a small mound of earth and bury it under several inches of soil. As the stalks grow, continue to fill in the trench until it is level with the rest of the garden. Asparagus is a greedy feeder and will benefit from a yearly mulch of compost or manure. Begin harvesting the third spring after planting by cutting 15-22cm (6-9") tall spears at the soil surface. If sowing seeds, soak them for 48 hours prior to planting to encourage germination.
