Green asparagus

Green asparagus is the green shoot which emerges from the root of the asparagus plant. Green asparagus gets its fresh green colour because it grows above ground and receives sufficient sunlight. Green asparagus is spicy and nutty in flavour. In general, green asparagus contain the most vitamins out of all the types of asparagus.

If white asparagus are called the “white gold”, then our green asparagus can definitely be termed the “green gold”. The healthy green gold! This is because all types of asparagus are rich in vitamins and low in calories. We also have white asparagus in our assortment.

Storage advice Green asparagus


In the store
Before selling, asparagus must be stored in a cool place at 0 to 2°C and at a relative humidity (RH) of 90 to 95%.

At home
We recommend that the consumer removes the rubber band and then places the asparagus in a plastic bag. This then needs to be put in the crisper in the refrigerator. Don’t leave them for too long; the fresher, the better!


Usage tips Green asparagus


You don’t have to peel green asparagus. Cut off a bit of the woody bottom part of the stalk and then soak the stalks in cold water for 30 minutes. Boil or stir-fry the asparagus for 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness.
