  • the green asparagus grow above ground. They owe their green colour to the photosynthesis process. A substance, called chlorophyll is created through the sunlight and this colours the stems green.

  • you can check to see if the asparagus are fresh by rubbing them together. If they squeak, they are fresh.

  • asparagus can grow very fast in the summer months. Therefore green asparagus are sometimes harvested twice a day.
