Gift wrapping Options available
Super disease resistance! Top-size green spears with feisty purple tips! Jersey Knight is 99.5% male roots, so you can count of larger, more profuse spears than ever from this ultra-vigorous performer! The spears are top-size -- a full 5/8-inch in diameter -- and are bright green with deep purple tips and bracts. Stunning on the dinner plate, they're one of the easiest varieties to grow, thanks to terrific vigor that makes these plants come back stronger every year! The yield you can expect from Jersey Knight is 2 to 4 times greater than older strains, such as the Washington series. Highly Rust-resistant and tolerant of Fusarium, Crown and Rust Rot, Jersey Knight is the one you want for years of reliable peformance! We sell very well-rooted bareroot plants, and it's important that you plant them as quickly as you can upon arrival, because dry or withered roots are a problem for Asparagus. Prepare the soil well, adding plenty of organic matter and fertilizing with a well-balanced mixture such as 5-10-10. Asparagus has deep, spreading roots, so be sure the soil is well-worked. Space the plants about 1 1/2 feet apart and water well during growth. Fertilize twice annually (before new spring growth and right after harvest).
