Perfect and beautiful slender spears of hand-selected baby white asparagus are unlike anything you've ever seen or tasted. At over 140 spears to the pound, this asparagus is the tiniest ever!
Baby White Asparagus is the essence of spring. Unlike traditional "fat" white asparagus, there is no need to peel melt-in-your-mouth tender baby white asparagus. At its best when lightly steamed or served raw, baby white asparagus makes a stunning presentation when used as a garnish, on a delicate salad, or served as a vegetable for your special dinner guests.
Baby white asparagus is grown in Washington State by a patented indoor growing method. The asparagus crowns are "forced" in a special darkened growing room and are carefully hand-harvested. This unique growth process is highly labor intensive and production is very limited.
Foodwriter David Rosengarten says of Baby White Asparagus, "...amazing texture, crisp, light...the sweetest asparagus I've ever tasted".
