Q.Male Asparagus reseeding

Zone 48766 | Gabby added on August 7, 2018 | Answered

If I plant all male asparagus seeds, will my plants reseed themselves or do I need the female plant to have the male plant spread. I prefer the male over the female due to the bigger stalks.

They will not reseed, as males cannot produce seeds. They only produce pollen. They will still reproduce with their roots, though. They will spread in that way, rather than spreading by seed. Also, these will all be male, since they are just extensions of the same plant.
