Asparagus is the earliest vegetable harvested fresh from the garden each spring. After the first year a productive bed of asparagus can last 15 years or longer so choose your location carefully before planting. Once established, Jersey Giant produces heavy yields of dark green spears year after year. Water weekly if it doesn’t rain and cut no asparagus shoots the first year, allow the foliage to grow, yellow and die on its own. The second year cut sparingly only those stalks as big as your finger.
