When is asparagus season?

Among the veggies, asparagus is one of the most seasonal treats. Although a green fibrous watery stick, we consider them a special treat and there are so many special recipes including them. This is partly because of the seasonality (I must say I eat asparagus only a few times a year, only in season, and each of those times is very special).

Asparagus are produced in California from February, Washington’s production joins in April and Michigan in May, all of them finishing going out of season in June. Better to get them locally, please find the asparagus season close to you in the following chart.

There are excellent reasons to eat asparagus. They are a superior source of essential vitamins like vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and necessary minerals. Because they are high in fiber, they will help your digestion and the best weight loss ally. They are also known for helping reduce your blood pressure and therefore heart risks.

You can really show off when you invite your friends with asparagus. Blend them with some freshly prepared seafood, or make them in scallops with scallops prosciutto and browned butter. I promise your guests will remember them till next season!
