Jersey Supreme Asparagus
I planted Jersey Supreme. Here's my Asparagus garden. And here's my
Asparagus and Brown Elephant storey. I wanted Asparagus plants that were going to be productive care-free. You
know easy to grow. I was told that the "key" to growing Asparagus was the "soil "and "watering". And that the
Asparagus would grow well as long as I provided the proper soil and water.
And as it turned out I tilled my soil added compost and some sand and had a pH of 7,0. I watered the Asparagus
once and sometimes twice a week. If the soil was moist I just let it be.
So all in all . . . . It doesn't matter which variety you choose as long as you prepare the soil and water just moderately.
The Jersey Supreme produce an average size spear that are sweet and tender. I added some Jersey Giants
Asparagus in another area and I like those as well. The Giant were a thicker spear yet still tender and sweet.
Soon after I cut the spears off in a couple of weeks others appeared.
I planted a natural barrier of Garlic around my Jersey Supreme and Jersey Giant Asparagus. The Garlic kept out
garden pests -- bugs and rabbits. It's the smell of the Garlic that garden pests don't like. The good thing is that the
Asparagus does not absorb the Garlic smell. Elephant Garlic or Jumbo Garlic works best.
"I planted Heirloom. I canned mine so I could enjoy Asparagus
during the winter. Look closely at the spears in the jars. They
are not chewed on and don't have holes in them. I planted
Garlic in between the asparagus . The garlic works as a natural
barrier at keeping bugs and rodents out of my garden."

We are Community Gardeners. We gather together to plant Asparagus and other veggies. Here we can enjoy each
other in a peaceful non stressful environment. And grow some Asparagus for someone who can't . . .It surely is a joyful
We grew Jersey Knight Asparagus last season. They grew very well for us. The Jersey Knight are thinner than the
other varieties. They are sweet and tender. Tye is stir fry specialist. His secrets to sweet tender Asparagus is olive oil,
oregano, high cooking temperature, butter and sea salt. We plant garlic in between the Asparagus to protect our
Asparagus. So far it has helped a lot.
The ladies like to make salads and use the Jersey Knight for pickling. John breads the spears and makes extra for the
The Jersey Knight produce a few less spears per plant than the other varieties. The Jersey Knight variety make about
5 spears per plant. However they are not already at the same time for harvesting. The ones that are not picking size
( 7 - 9 inches) will be ready in a week or so. The Jersey Knight are sweet and tender as all the other varieties of
Asparagus. It really doesn't matter which variety of Asparagus you plant. Just prepare you soil properly and all
varieties are carefree and easy to grow. If you have clay in your gardening soil, remove it as best you can and fill in
with compost and sand. Do the "water drainage perk test" when your done. The Test goes like this . . . dig a hole 1
foot deep and 2 feet wide. Then fill the hole up with water. Then time it -- if there is water standing in the hole 2 hours
later you will need to adjust the drainage in your gardening area. Adjusting the drainage is easy to do sometimes just
adding sand will make the difference. This season I am adding more garlic that really works when trying to keeps bugs
out of the garden.
Looks like the vote is in . . . we will be adding Jersey Supreme and Jersey Giant to our Community Garden in 2013.
We always grow more than we can use so we can give to those that can't not garden.
Start a Community Garden in your area and enjoy meeting new gardening friends and share .
Plant a Community Garden grow some Jersey Asparagus for someone who can't . . . it surely is a joyful experience.

I planted Jersey Giant. Here's my Asparagus Garden. And here's my Asparagus Gardening story. As you can see the
Jersey Giants produce thick spears. Also the Jersey Giant variety produce about 4 spears per root. Now you many think
that your getting less than say from the Jersey Supreme variety . For example, if you count the number of spears on the
Jersey Giant variety and count the number of spears on the Jersey Supreme there is a difference. But the thing is that if
you gather 7 spears from the Supreme variety and took 4 of the Jersey Giant variety the total weight of each asparagus
variety would asparagus would weight the same. So in weight you are actually getting the same amount. The difference
is the Jersey Giant variety is thick and the Jersey Supreme the spears are more thin and slender.
The Jersey Giant variety since they are thicker can take the intense heat from the grill or baking in the oven and
canning. Some may argue that the "bigger the spears " are tougher and not as sweet. However the University of PA
proved that theory to be a myth. Thicker does not mean tougher. The Jersey Giant are just as sweet and tender as the
other varieties of Jersey Asparagus. Here's the most recent research on the tough guy.
I have to support Jay's notion on prepare the soil properly and water moderately and you will have a very "successful"
asparagus garden. And add some Asparagus variety to your garden. Add some thick ones, some thin ones, and some
average size ones. It will be a challenge not to over eat. If you do you may turn green like me.

First Time Home Asparagus Gardener - Plan On Growing Heirloom Asparagus
Ed and Carol we are first time Asparagus Gardener from Illinois. We are planting the Heirloom Asparagus. We have
about an average size back yard. We got tired of mowing the grass. And wanted to put something in the yard that
would benefit our family as well as something that was fun to do. So we got back into gardening. We read about all
the Jersey Asparagus varieties and like them all. We figured that we wanted to do something a little different.
We wanted to grow Organic and we wanted go grow everything the was not a hybrid. We are planning on putting in
the Heirloom Asparagus. The thing that we liked most about the Asparagus varieties at the Asparagus Gardener -
Farm was the natural way the Asparagus Gardener - Farm grows their Asparagus Varieties. All Asparagus is chemical
free and fertilized with the Asparagus Tea which is all organic and has no chemicals added. Furthermore it can be
used on all garden veggies and flowers.
That excited us the most. So we are thrilled to start the Spring 2012 with planting our Heirloom Asparagus.
The Heirloom Asparagus variety are natural ( a wild asparagus variety) - no genetic changes. So we know we will get
some thick spears and some thin spears all in the same Asparagus patch. We plan on planting the Asparagus right in
front of the bean poles. Now that may not be the best place for the Asparagus but I figured that the ferns from the
Asparagus would shade the Ever bearing Strawberry plants from the afternoon sun. We are hoping for the best.

Danny from Grapevine, Texas.
I like Heirloom Asparagus. Easy to grow and plentiful. I use the Asparagus Tea
from early Spring till Fall. When Fall comes I don't feed the Asparagus any more as
they are preparing to go dormant. The Tea feeds the Asparagus roots and the
garlic protects the spears from bugs and rodents.
