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.

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.
