Most noted for it’s high yields, great flavor, exceptional vigor and asparagus rust resistance.  In 1997 OSU conducted an asparagus performance field trial of the top five yielding asparagus varieties consisting of Delmonte 361*, Jersey Giant, Jersey Knight, UC 157 and Mary Washington .  Delmonte 361* not only produced the highest yields but produced over 47% more pounds per acres then it’s closest competitor (Jersey Giant).  Asparagus will grow well in all areas of the US except the wet mild areas of Florida and the Gulf Coast.  Grows in zones 3-9 but will grow anywhere where winter temperatures get below freezing.  These crowns have recently been dug and are plump and full of vitality, not like what you will find at the big box stores, where crowns have been sitting in a warehouse for months.  Avoid harvesting any shoots the first year while the asparagus roots are getting established and only harvest half of the shoots the second year.    Asparagus is a perennial that, once planted and if properly maintained, will produce for 15-25 years or more.   Rich in Vitamins B & C as well as calcium and iron.  Enjoy as the 1st vegetable of the season.  Asparagus that is grown in your garden will taste much better and be more tender than anything you will find in the supermarket.  Comes with complete planting and care guide.

*Delmonte is a registared trademark name of Delmonte.

Mrs
Very happy with my purchase. I ordered the 30 and so far I have 20 little guys poking their heads up. Will definitely order from this company again and again.

Great place to find these rare crowns
Crowns arrived quickly and appeared to be in great condition. They were planted promptly. I've have had good luck with most of them already up and and growing. We'll still be a year or two down the road before we can say how well they produce. So far, I'm happy.

Excellent!
I purchased the Delmonte Asparagus and so far they are popping up like crazy. I put in 2 locations, and of course the one in the full sun is doing better. I had excellent prompt service from Mark. I would order again without hesitation.
