The succulent taste of this vegetable is impossible to describe, but once tasted its succulent flavors will keep you coming back for more.

Considered a delicacy by many, Purple Asparagus is a delicious treat. Melissa’s Purple Asparagus has a wonderfully crisp and succulent texture with a slightly sweeter and brighter flavor than the green and white variety. Its gorgeous purple color suggests that it is high in antioxidants, making it popular among foodies and health conscious consumers.

Melissa’s Purple Asparagus can be enjoyed both hot or cold. Try them broiled or baked with just a bit of seasoning, butter or cheese. Or add them to a green salad or bean salad for extra crunch. You can even pair them with our Hollandaise sauce for a scrumptious appetizer!

Asparagus will keep for up to seven days in the refrigerator wrapped in a wet paper towel. Serve promptly for best flavor.
