The asparagus is usually available in South Australia from September with the arrival of Spring as the asparagus thrives in warm weather with sufficient rainfall. Extremely nutritional, the asparagus is full of vitamin C, a wide range of B vitamins, folate, iron as well as potassium and sodium. It is also low in kilojoules providing fibre without fat or cholesterol.
There are three different types of asparagus, green, white and purple. Green and white asparagus are exactly the same, but green asparagus gets its colour from the process of photosynthesis as the spear emerges into the sunlight, while white asparagus is grown in the dark. The best asparagus spears are long, thick and dark green with tightly closed heads.
Purple asparagus is a different variety to the green and white asparagus. The purple colour comes from the high levels of potential antioxidants in the spears with a lower fibre content than the green or white asparagus.
Asparagus has a wide variety of cooking methods. It is tasty steamed, stir-fried, baked, blended, in a salad or cooked on the barbecue.
Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market stallholder Darling Street Asparagus currently have green asparagus available which is grown on their Renmark farm.
