The above order has just arrived. All the plants are in very good condition-Thank you. I have, over the years, become used to plants arriving badly damaged from other suppliers, generally because they were not packed properly-these were packed very well. Again thank you.

This is a superior variety of Asparagus that produces premium quality spears up to 1" (2 cm) thick - but despite being so thick they are tender and sweet.

Being 'all male' this variety will consistently produce heavier crops than open-pollinated male / female varieties - once established, the cropping potential of this variety is enormous! And as up to 20 years cropping can be expected, this a highly profitable variety in every way for amateur and smallholder alike.

It also has the benefit of a high tolerance to Fusarium, Crown and root rot.

Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA bred the Asparagus.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Plant out any time of the year, weather permitting.
  • Plant out 9" (23 cm) or further apart in rows 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Keep plants well watered in dry spells.
  • Do not cut (harvest) in the first year and do not be too greedy in the second year either.
  • Always harvest by cutting through stems with a sharp knife just below soil level, avoiding stems just emerging.
  • Cut down the dead 'fern' each autumn and then mulch the bed with a thin layer of well-rotted manure or similar.
Available from approximately April 2018
