Description

  • Latin Name: Asparagus officinalis
  • Zones: 3-10
  • Spacing/Depth: 18"/6" (root crown to top of soil)
  • Height/Spread: 4' - 5'/18"
  • Facts of note: This male variety yields the highest quality spears of the Jersey hybrids. These predominantly male plants (a few females may sneak in) put all their energy into producing beautiful, 7" - 9" spears, rather than berries and seeds. Cold and heat-tolerant. Highly resistant to rust, Fusarium, root rot, crown rot, and Cercospora.

Note: Do not be alarmed if there is small amounts of bluish-white mold on your rootstock, this is absolutely normal. It occurs from the cold storage process used to keep the plants dormant. This mold can be wiped off and will not affect the health of the plant. However, if the plants are rotten and/or mushy, please give us a call.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (with the exception of persimmon trees, which have a deadline of June 15th)! Claims placed after June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will be denied.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please perform a scratch test by checking for green under the bark, a few inches over the graft. If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, that means your tree/plant is dead or dying. Watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty on how to perform this simple test. If the scratch test revealed that your plant is dead or dying, pull it from the ground and take pictures of the entire tree/plant, including the roots. Submit your claim & pictures by using the “Return an Item” tool on our Customer Service page (or email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com) no later than June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees). We will review your claim and issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items purchased with credit, or if we determine (by the pictures you provide) that your tree/plant was improperly cared for (due to root rot, rodent or mechanical damage).

So far so good

This came quickly and as described. They are in the ground and I am patient!

So far, so good

The crowns arrived in good condition. They were slightly moldy as was mentioned in the literature; easily wiped off. I heeled them in and prepared my trenches as instructed and demonstrated in tutorial videos. Just waiting for 50 degree soil to plant and two years of growth--I\'ll never comment on the taste then!

1st year in garden, thick spears coming up in December

I planted 2 bundles of 12, Jersey Knight & Farmers Favorite. 4 of each didn't make it. I must of done something wrong. I planted them in mid-January (30 miles south of Seattle). Got a good number of ferns on each of the good 8. Anywhere from 5-10+ ferns from 2'-3.5' tall.

Now, December 2nd, I went to cut the part yellow but some still green ferns to get ready for winter and 5 of the Jersey Knights have from 1 to 5 decent sized spears coming up. Closer in size to my index finger than my pinky. We have freezing weather forecast for Sun- Wed (it's Friday today), can I let these grow a few days and cut them off and eat them? Or is it too late in the season? They range in size from 1" to almost 3" tall.
