Great production and fine disease resistance from both strains!

Delicious, heavy-yielding Asparagus Jersey Supreme Hybrid and thick-but-tender Pacific Purple!
One of the few vegetables that continues to produce for many years, Asparagus is an investment in the long-term success of the garden--not to mention the dinner plate! In this collection we've selected our two finest varieties -- green Jersey Supreme and maroon Pacific Purple -- to give you an economical start on a complete Asparagus garden!

We sell well-rooted bareroot plants, and it is important that you plant them at once upon arrival -- 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. Set plants about 1 1/2 feet apart and water well during growth. Fertilize twice annually (before new spring growth and right after harvest). Cut no spears the first year, and cut only sparingly the second in order to encourage a great crop for the third year. If you want white (blanched) Asparagus, simply block out the light as the spears are forming by applying mulch on the plants.

You'll get 40 bareroot plants of these 2 fine varieties.
