Growing and harvesting

At the grower's

Cultivation of asparagus plants takes about 3 years. Growers can then start the first harvest. Asparagus can be cut when it has reached the correct length. Because the green variant grows above the ground, cutting is less labour-intensive. Every 1 to 2 days, the employees go around the field to cut new asparagus. In the summer months, growth is even faster. This means that sometimes it is necessary to harvest twice a day.

A harvest period lasts approximately 20 days. Growers can use the field twice a year. After each harvest, the crop must rest for 5 to 6 months. In the packing station, the employees rinse the green asparagus and cut the tips 10 cm from the top. They are sorted, and stored refrigerated. The asparagus reach the shop within 1 or 2 days.

Recipes & preparation tips

Just like the bigger green asparagus, the green asparagus tips don't need to be peeled. The customer can cook, stir fry, bake or grill them whole. Short preparation keeps the taste strong. Recipes with green asparagus can also be prepared with green asparagus tips. Presenting the tips as fingergood, or as crostini is a refreshing presenting option. It doesn't matter whether the asparagus are cold or warm, the taste is always good!
