We have been growing asparagus for a number of year and it has remained popular, due in no small part to the quality of the spears. This is largely due to the excellent soil in which it is grown. The main variety we grow is Eros.
All of the asparagus is cut by hand and most of it will only be a few hours old when you buy it! During warm weather, the spears grow so quickly that they require cutting twice a day, meaning they will be extra tender.
Asparagus normally first appear in late April and the season ends on 21 June.
Asparagus is sold in 1 lb (454g) bunches priced at £2.50.
