Product Description

The fleshy green spears of Asparagus are both succulent and tender and have been considered a delicacy since ancient times. This highly prized vegetable arrives with the coming of spring when its shoots break through the soil and reach their harvest length (6-8 inches).
The name Asparagus comes from the Greek language meaning sprout or shoot; its cultivation began more than 2,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean region.
