One of the new all-male hybrid asparagus developments from the University of Rutgers in New Jersey. Jersey Knight is extremely vigorous, has large, tender spears, and nice tight cluster heads.

A neutral ph seems to be more suitable between 6.8 to 7.2 is ideal. Is great for freezing and grows in zones 3-8
