The star of spring, green asparagus is a young and tender shoot that is associated with the awakening of nature. The green type is low in calories and rich in folic acid, a B vitamin, and asparagine, a substance that increases resistance to fatigue. Like white asparagus, greens have antioxidant, diuretic and detoxifying properties. They are a tasty appetiser and can delight the palate with refined first courses or, delicate but tasty, light main courses.
Because of its peculiarities, the light-green asparagus is not sorted according to size.
