La delicate' white asparagus is a very soft and very tender white asparagus produced on the edges of the Loire between Chinon and Bourgueil. It benefits from being grown in perfect soil and an ideal climate. 

White Asparagus is white because it is grown without being exposed to light, preventing chlorophyll production. As it grows, the soil is piled onto the seedling to keep it in the dark – a labour-intensive process.

The majority of fresh white asparagus comes from the Loire Valley. It is graded by size, with the thickest spears being highly prized and the most expensive. 

Origin: France
