White asparagus is a highly prized and sought-after variety of asparagus that has a unique appearance and taste. Unlike green asparagus, which grows above the ground and is exposed to sunlight, white asparagus is grown entirely underground or covered with soil or plastic to keep it from sunlight. This process prevents the plant from producing chlorophyll, which gives the vegetable its green colour and gives the spears its distinctive milky white appearance.
- The cultivation of white asparagus is a delicate process that requires careful attention to detail. The spears must be harvested by hand, and the soil is mounded around them as they grow to keep them covered and protected from the sun. This results in a more delicate and tender spear with a mild, slightly nutty flavour that is prized by chefs and food lovers alike.
- White asparagus is often considered a delicacy in many parts of the world, and it is a staple in many traditional dishes. It is a good source of fibre, folate, and vitamins C and E, making it a nutritious addition to any diet.
- It can be prepared in various ways, including steaming, roasting, grilling, or sautéing, and is a delicious accompaniment to many dishes, from pasta to seafood.
