Produced a bunch the first year, and it's the best tasting asparagus myself and my family have ever had!

Excellent quality!
Reviewed By: Downtown3 (western, USA)
I'm a first-time customer of Gurney's. I ordered the Mary Washington Improved starts, jumbo grade. The starts I received were of consistently excellent quality--fresh-appearing, plump, ready to take off! Properly planted and cared for, I expect 100% of them to thrive. Wow! I'll be a repeat Gurney's customer, that's for sure!

Hearty!

"This is a GREAT asparagus. The roots I received were terrific. #1 shape. Very fast growers. Cannot wait til I can eat some of these. I have another type I have been cutting. I bought those roots at a variety store, but they are not as good as the ones I bought from Gurneys."
