Delicate. Flavorful. If you've yet to try these extra thick spears you may be surprised by both. If you have had white asparagus conservas this description is completely unnecessary. Simply order some, and enjoy.
Authentic, extra thick, white asparagus D.O. (Designation of Origin) Navarre is emblematic of the fertile land of the Ebro River valley. The autonomous regions of Navarre, Aragon, and La Rioja are situated amongst softly scattered hills and small mountain ranges, and only asparagus produced in this area receives the designation.
White asparagus, with delicate texture, and balanced flavor, derives its uniqueness from the land, the cold nights in the production area, and the quality of the water used for cultivation.
As one customer states, "I used a few spears in a salad with Bibb lettuce, vine ripened tomato, sprouts and green onion. Dressing was just vinegar and Donostia's EVOO. Excellent, so good in fact I had to go back and eat a spear straight from the jar."
The asparagus is planted during February, with stems beginning to grow in spring and continuing throughout the summer, accumulating reserves in the roots to sprout the following year. During the second year in March, ridging is carried out; the small pile of earth along the plant line allows the sprouts to come up without reaching the sunlight. It’s this lack of sunlight that gives the asparagus the traditional white color.
