Asparagus

We also sell Wild Asparagus - the most superb flavour and you don't have to wait 5 years for it. A hard to find chef and foodie favourite.  (UK ONLY). We can also offer white Venetian asparagus, the meaty one you earth up, and the purple of Albenga which is a more traditional variety, very rare and one of exceptional quality and flavour.

Even Pliny in Roman times described asparagus as being a speciality of Ravenna where it was cultivated so widely, they drained a major river to get enough sand and sediment for it's cultivation.

In the 15th century, White asparagus was grown in Venice, Friuli, Venezia Giulia, and Trentino Alto Adige, Piemonte, Emilia Romagna and Tuscany for the green varieties and Liguria for the Purple of Albenga.
