Organic Asparagus Bunch
The fleshy green spears of asparagus are both succulent and tender and have been considered a delicacy since ancient times.
No other vegetable signifies the arrival of spring like asparagus. The spring sunshine provides the warmth and the spring rains provide the moisture needed to encourage the emergence of the spears from the crown of the plant lying beneath the soil and reach their 15-20 cm harvest length.
In Victoria the first crops are picked in early September and are harvested through to March, although they are at their peak from October to December
