Sun Belle White Asparagus
This European inspired delicacy is grown year round for Sun Belle in the arid and ideal micro climates of Peru. Unlike its green cousin, white asparagus is firm throughout from tip to spear. It is ideal as an elegant first course, dressed in a vinaigrette, as an accent to salad or steamed, as a stunning vegetable course bathed in a hollandaise or similar sauce. White asparagus from Peru is so tender that, once the woody butt is trimmed, it can be served and eaten whole without peeling.
