In Peru, which is the second largest producer of asparagus next to China, white asparagus is grown under a covering of reclaimed desert soil to keep the sun’s rays out, thus preventing photosynthesis and the development of chlorophyll - the green color found in regular asparagus.

White asparagus tends to be much thicker than green asparagus; by harvesting just the tips of the plant, Melissa’s offers the best of the best! White asparagus has a more delicate flavor than green. While green asparagus is a bit grassy, white asparagus is sweeter with a very mild flavor.

Try Melissa’s White Asparagus broiled or baked in butter and a little seasoning. Or better yet, enjoy Melissa’s White Asparagus tips with Melissa’s Authentic Hollandaise Sauce.
