This delicious and nutritous new intro is an all-male hybrid: more energy is used toward growing plants and less to maturing seeds, producing huge 7-9" green spears with attractive purple bracts. Even more impressive is its resistance to rust, fusarium, and crown and root rot. 'Jersey Giant' is the most winter hardy of all the Jersey Hybrids and it is widely adapted to temperate and cool climates, insuring a decade or more of "Giant" harvests!
