Asparagus is easily grown in any soil from sandy to heavy clay as long as it is well drained. Space the crowns 12″ apart in rows 8″ deep and 30″ – 36″ apart, and the second spring after planting, you can begin a light harvest.  Read our planting guide for detailed planting instructions. 

Jersey Giant – has been a standard in asparagus production for many years. Giant produces large spears of superb quality, and has very high productivity, since plants are predominantly male.  This variety has better disease resistance than most varieties, and comes into production sooner than most other asparagus. This strong grower can often be picked lightly the spring after planting.
