We grow two varieties of asparagus on our farm.
Jersey Knight will grow taller and still keep a tight head in our warm spring weather. Jersey Giant has to be picked shorter for the heads to remain tight, but will out produce the Jersey Knight 2 to 1. Contrary to popular belief, jumbo asparagus is just as tender as standard or pencil size.
For the most mouth-watering fresh asparagus,
come to B&G’s garden at Fort Worth Farmers Market
Since B&G’s is a working farm.
Call for availability, hours and details.
As other crops become available, they will be posted on our calendar page.
