Notoriously difficult to grow organically, our asparagus heralds the start of Summer. This crop is in the ground for 2 years before it is harvested and will then last another 8 to 10 years.
Asparagus is naturally rich in Folate which helps to make red blood cells. These carry oxygen around the body as well as helping the immune system work as it should.
100g of Asparagus provides half an adults recommended daily allowance.
1 of 5 a day = 80g (roughly 4 spears).
