One of the New Jersey asparagus hybrids, Jersey Knight is extremely vigorous, has large, succulent spears, and quickly attracts a loyal following. The flavor is excellent, and the plant is resistant to rust, crown rot and fusarium. It also performs equally well in heavy, clay-like soils.

We live in the country of Panama. Some plants do not grow well here from the states. I want to tell you how pleased we are with the asparagus plants we ordered. They are growing like crazy! We will be able to pick them this next year- the spears are very healthy. Thanks again for such healthy plants.! I want to order some other plants when we return in Sept.I know Blackberries, etc grow here.

I have bought roots from you for many years. They will not grow. I have moved them many times. They come up the first year, than towards the end of the season they disappear. Two years ago I bought an order of roots. As I did not have my new spot ready, I heeled them in another garden site Would'nt you know they greened right up.I was building a raised bed area for their permanent home. I did not move them until the following spring.[2018] A few came up, but basically I have nothing. We have wild Asp grow in our fence line, what am I doing wrong? I don't blame the roots, it's more apt to be the soil. I got some compost to fill my raised bed. HELP

This is my 2nd year and never lost one plant since planting, got way more BIG plants than I thought i would, more than happy with Norse Farms products.

Had to order plants from a different vendor as half of the plants I ordered from Norse didn't come up. Other supplier was cheaper and plants were much healthier and bigger, and much further along before and after planting. Won't buy asparagus from Norse again.

Ordered 50 Jersey Knight Asparagus this past spring. I followed the directions provided by Nourse Farms in how to prepare the bed for the plants. Roots arrived in beautiful conditions, and most were up within a week. I have kept the bed weed free and watered when needed. These plants have exceeded my expectations! The fronds are at least 5 ft tall, vigorous, and healthy. I have had no disease or pest problems whatsoever. I highly recommend buying directly from this grower. I have been most satisfied.
