Nutritional values

Green asparagus is much ahead of its white relative because it contains significantly more vitamin C and beta-carotene (provitamin A). Other vital substances such as vitamins of the B group, minerals and protein also make this noble vegetable a real fitness star.

The traditional season for asparagus in this country begins in early to mid-May, depending on the weather, and ends at the end of June according to the motto "cherries red, asparagus dead". However, since asparagus imports are now coming from other countries, the season has been extended and begins as early as the end of March.
