White Asparagus is a delicious treat, considered a delicacy by many. It is grown under a covering of soil to keep the sun’s rays out, thus preventing photosynthesis and the development of chlorophyll - the green color found in regular asparagus. The plant is harvested as soon as it starts to peek out of the earth.

The succulent flavor of this vegetable is impossible to describe, but once tasted, its wonderfully distinctive taste will keep you coming back for more. Asparagus is wonderful served cold in a green or bean salad, or hot as a savory featured side dish. Try Melissa’s White Asparagus broiled or baked with butter, the cheese of your choice and a little seasoning. Enjoy Melissa’s White Asparagus year-round with either hollandaise or dill sauce. It is also great blanched and served with a dipping sauce.

Melissa’s White Asparagus should be firm to the touch, with compact tips. Diameter of spear does not matter. Asparagus will keep for up to seven days in the refrigerator wrapped in a wet paper towel. Serve promptly for best flavor.
