This delicious and nutritous new intro is an all-male hybrid: more energy is used toward growing plants and less to maturing seeds, producing huge 7-9" green spears with attractive purple bracts. Even more impressive is its resistance to rust, fusarium, and crown and root rot. 'Jersey Giant' is the most winter hardy of all the Jersey Hybrids and it is widely adapted to temperate and cool climates, insuring a decade or more of "Giant" harvests!
Plant in full to part sun in average, well-drained soil. Let the plant grow the first year, lightly harvest the second year, and by the third year you'll be ready to enjoy the flavor and great health benefits for years to come! Harvest asparagus by snapping 7"-9" spears with tight tips. Light water requirements once established.
