One of the newest favorites of the asparagus world, the millennium asparagus is a productive variety with its high-quality spears and tender and good flavor. This cold-hardy asparagus grows very well in various soil types. Bred by Dr. Dave Wolyn at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, this variety is cold-hardy from zones 3-8 with rust resistance. The higher proportion of male plants is a favorite quality of the millennium asparagus. Male plants produce more spears, unlike females, who drop seeds often, which allows more weeds, beetle, and disease problems. 

Harvest Time: Late May-Early June
Best in zones: 3-8
Age of Plant: 2 Year 
Shipped as: Bare Root

Wondering how much to grow? Established asparagus plants produce about 1/2lb. of spears per bed foot in spring/early summer. If you are getting asparagus established for the first time, we recommend 5-10 crowns per person. (covers 15-30 row feet) 

As soon as you get these plants, they must be planted. fertilize with a well-balanced fertilizer and water well. Bury the entire crown so that the tip of the crown is around 2 inches below the soil level. This will protect the crown from any cold weather. Do not harvest the first year. Let plants become established before harvesting.
