I planted Jersey Knight crowns in my asparagus bed a couple of years after starting the bed with Mary Washingtons.
I believe that the J. Knights bear more harvestable speers than M. Washington, but I can't tell one from the other for sure until late summer when the M. Washingtons produce red berries. I continue to enrich my 5" x 16' bed with leafy compost, cow manure, and rotted sawdust. This spring we are enjoying an early harvest of plump, delicious speers, due to warm weather and plentiful rainfall since March.

I decided to start this plant from seed. Every seed that I planted came up. I'll see how good they grow further in the year. They show good potental right now.
