description for "Asparagus: Asparagus officinalis 'Jersey Giant'"

'Jersey Giant' asparagus is a delightful harbringers of spring. Asparagus likes deep, fertile and well-drained soil, so it's worth it to take a little time and consideration in preparing the ground where you will plant it. The rewards will be considerable. 'Jersey Giant' is a proven high yielder, being the most consistent of the new generation varieties. Top quality, all-male crowns put their energy into growing an abundance of purple-tipped spears. Rust- and fusarium-resistant and tolerant to root and crown rot. Recommended for hard winter areas. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman

History:

Asparagus officinalis is native to Europe, north Africa and Asia.
