Productive one-year male roots give years of abundant harvests.

Cold-tolerant asparagus plants adapt well to temperate, warm and cool climates. Asparagus does best in light to medium sandy soils. Plant crowns 14" apart, 8" deep. Cover with 2" of soil. As spears grow, fill the remaining 6" with soil. Make a partial harvest the following spring and a full harvest each spring thereafter.
