asparagus

Mine is 5 years old and the ferns are 6 foot tall. I snapped of the first one's that came up this year, and previous years, in the spring. Will they ever get big enough to pick from the branches off the fern? Also I noticed that the birds like the red berries that grow in about half of the plants. I have been told that these are the female plants.
