I added an asparagus bed 2 years ago. I had a decent harvest this year and let the rest develop for next season. We had a very late frost and killed alot of the foliage that was exposed. Will this harm the asparagus for next season?

I thought I had bought all male plants but have several that are producing berries. I was told to pull those plants out but don't want to. Should I remove the berries?
