The wide variability in plant characteristics within any given variety of asparagus has long been recognized. Many of the characteristics are sex-linked, which adds to the variability factor since asparagus are dioecious plants. In field plantings it is not uncommon to obtain two-fold differences in spear size and production between adjacent crowns.
