We all know green asparagus, but have you tried the white organic asparagus from Greenfern – Les Asperges.
As I took the photo of these beauties, a very excited lady came over and promptly bought the last ones, commenting
‘they are so tasty, much more than the green ones, they have a sweet, nutty flavour ‘.
White asparagus is grown completely under the soil or covered with plastic so it is never exposed to sunlight.
This prevents photosynthesis, keeping the spears milky white.
As they grow, more dirt is mounded up around them, keeping them covered until harvest time.
