Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis)
Probably native to the Mediterranean basin, asparagus was first eaten – most often in the wild – among the Egyptians and Greeks. It was the Romans, later, who developed its culture, but this vegetable then remained reserved for wealthy gourmets. Asparagus plants are usually bought off the shelf when they are one or two years old, often male plants. We sell seeds because the diversity is greater from sexual reproduction than from cloning. You can start picking your asparagus three years after planting seeds.
Latin name: Asparagus officinalis
Common name: Asparagus
